Phase Synchronization in MEG/EEG: methodological considerations and empirical evidenceMS19

Synchronization of active neuronal groups has been proven to have causal consequences for neuronal communication. Magnetoencephalography is an ideal tool to study brain synchronization thanks to its non-invasiveness coupled to exquisite temporal and good spatial resolutions. This talk will address methods to detect linear and nonlinear frequency specific phase synchronization in MEG/EEG. The relevance of the proposed approaches to the underlying brain communication mechanisms will be discussed in covert visuospatial attention MEG data.

This presentation is part of Minisymposium “MS19 - Brain imaging: from neurosignals to functional brain mapping
