Lectures and seminars Cognitive Neuroscience Club with Satu Palva: "Large-scale neuronal dynamics and connectivity in visual cognition"
The Cognitive Neuroscience Club is hosting monthly webinars on the topic Cognitive Neuroscience. The webinars usually takes place during the last week of the month. On 28 September 2021, we welcome Satu Palva, from University of Helsinki, Finland. Online via Zoom.
"Large-scale neuronal dynamics and connectivity in visual cognition"
Dr. Satu Palva, University of Helsinki, Finland
Latest advances in using magneto- and electroencephalography (M/EEG), and invasive intracranial EEG (iEEG) recordings have highlighted the presence and significance of large-scale brain-wide networks in rest and cognitive functions. In M/EEG and iEEG, functional connectomes can be estimated from source constructed MEG data using data-driven approaches. In this talk, I will give an overview for the results, where we have shown that large-scale network synchronization is robust across a wide-range of frequencies and predictive of individual performance in working memory, attention and perceptual tasks. I will specifically discuss how synchronization across oscillatory frequencies could provide a novel mechanism for cognitive integration by integrating the information across spectrally distributed oscillatory assemblies.
