A magnetoencephalography study of functional brain connectivity in childhood, adolescence and adulthood
Smith, Helen Joanna Fabienne (2015) A magnetoencephalography study of functional brain connectivity in childhood, adolescence and adulthood. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
Functional brain networks are interconnected brain regions that flexibly coordinate their activity to support cognitive demands (Fair et al., 2009). Functional brain connectivity describes a statistical dependency between the activities recorded at spatially distinct brain regions (Friston, 2009). Changes in the pattern of connections and level of activation in functional brain networks are thought to occur across development (Taylor, Donner, & Pang, 2012) but the nature of these changes and their relationship to cognitive development have yet to be delineated clearly.
