The brain functions (and dysfunctions) through interactions spanning spatial scales, from the single neuron to the entire nervous system, and temporal scales, from millisecond action potentials to decades of development. Modern neuroimaging, combined with sophisticated data analysis tools, has expanded analysis of brain activity from individual brain components to networks of interacting brain regions. Understanding these brain networks and the big data they entail, remains a fundamental challenge of modern neuroscience, with the potential for significant impacts to human health and disease.

In this seminar, Dr. Kramer will discuss ways of characterizing functional connectivity in the brain, going from basic concepts to applications to understanding the activity during spontaneous seizures.
