Jerry Wang publishes landmark study on human brain interactome

Cognition relies on rapid and robust communication between brain areas. Wang et al. leverage multi-day intracranial field potential recordings to characterize the human mesoscopic functional interactome. The methods are validated using monkey anatomical and physiological data. The human interactome reveals small-world properties and is modulated by sleep versus awake state.

  • Recorded continuous intracranial field potentials for 5 days in 48 human subjects
  • Characterized functional mesoscopic interactome assessed by pairwise coherence
  • Validated methods using anatomical and physiological interactions in monkeys
  • Human functional interactome shows small-world graph and changes with brain state
