The behavioural relevance of resting state functional connectivity for goal-directed attention in spatial neglect patients

Julia Fellrath, MySpace, Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Lausanne University Hospital

In this talk, I’ll present one of my previous study (Fellrath et al., 2016) to illustrate the method of EEG resting-state functional connectivity at the source level. We investigated cortical network correlates of top-down attention performance in healthy controls and patients with left neglect. We reconstructed cortical networks from surface EEG recordings with inverse solutions and measures of oscillation synchrony (imaginary coherence). These EEG reconstructions allowed us to assess topographical and spectral changes in brain networks and to correlate them with top-down attention in a visuo-spatial task.
