Slow Endogenous Fluctuations in Cortical Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Signals Correlate with Reduced Performance in a Visual Detection Task and Are Suppressed by Spatial Attention

David W. Bressler, Ariel Rokem, Michael A. Silver
2019 Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience  
Spatial attention improves performance on visual tasks, increases neural responses to attended stimuli, and reduces correlated noise in visual cortical neurons.  ...  Instead, perceptual performance was accounted for by the amount of suppression of slow endogenous fluctuations.  ...  Slow Endogenous Fluctuations in Cortical fMRI Signals Correlate with Reduced Performance in a Visual Detection Task and Are Suppressed by Spatial Attention David W.  ...

Natural Scenes Viewing Alters the Dynamics of Functional Connectivity in the Human Brain

Viviana Betti, Stefania Della Penna, Francesco de Pasquale, Dante Mantini, Laura Marzetti, Gian Luca Romani, Maurizio Corbetta
2013 Neuron  
We use MEG to measure slow ($0.1 Hz) coherent fluctuations of band-limited power (BLP), a robust correlate of RSN, during rest and movie observation and compare them to fMRI-RSN.  ...  Spontaneous fMRI fluctuations are organized in large-scale spatiotemporal structures, or restingstate networks (RSN). However, it is unknown how task performance affects RSN dynamics.  ...  signal in the resting state correlate with fluctuations of the slow cortical potentials (SCP) (<4 Hz) and BLP fluctuations of signals at higher frequencies (a, b, and g bands) (He et al., 2008; Nir et  ...

Eugene P. Duff, Leigh A. Johnston, Jinhu Xiong, Peter T. Fox, Iven Mareels, Gary F. Egan
2008 Human Brain Mapping  
Correlations between motor regions also reduced with task performance.  ...  The spatial correlations shown by these fluctuations has been their identifying feature, distinguishing them from fluctuations associated with other processes.  ...  A recent follow-up study found the amplitude of low-frequency BOLD signal fluctuations in many regions, including the visual, motor, and auditory cortices, to be negatively correlated with wakefulness,  ...

Predictive Coding or Evidence Accumulation? False Inference and Neuronal Fluctuations

Guido Hesselmann, Sepideh Sadaghiani, Karl J. Friston, Andreas Kleinschmidt, Jan Lauwereyns
2010 PLoS ONE  
We analysed fluctuations in ongoing neural activity, as indexed by fMRI, and found that neuronal activity in sensory areas (extrastriate visual and early auditory cortex) biases perceptual decisions towards  ...  In accord with predictive coding models and the free-energy principle, this observation suggests that cortical activity in sensory brain areas reflects the precision of prediction errors and not just the  ...  Under predictive coding, this higher sensory noise should suppress the gain of error units and reduce activity levels, accentuating the effect of endogenous fluctuations.  ...

Tagged MEG measures binocular rivalry in a cortical network that predicts alternation rate

Elizabeth A. Bock, Jeremy D. Fesi, Sylvain Baillet, Janine D. Mendola, Nicholas Seow Chiang Price
2019 PLoS ONE  
Binocular rivalry (BR) is a dynamic visual illusion that provides insight into the cortical mechanisms of visual awareness, stimulus selection, and object identification.  ...  During BR, event-related monocular input in V1, and broadly in higher-tier ventral temporal cortex, waxed and waned with the periods of left or right eye dominance/suppression.  ...  In a previous fMRI study of binocular rivalry [40] , we found that the strength of BOLD signal measured in V2 and V3 was correlated with mean dominance duration across subjects (greater in slow switchers  ...

Global waves synchronize the brain's functional systems with fluctuating arousal

Ryan V. Raut, Abraham Z. Snyder, Anish Mitra, Dov Yellin, Naotaka Fujii, Rafael Malach, Marcus E. Raichle
2021 Science Advances  
Here, using fMRI in humans, we show that ongoing arousal fluctuations are associated with global waves of activity that slowly propagate in parallel throughout the neocortex, thalamus, striatum, and cerebellum  ...  We hypothesize that these waves are the predominant physiological process reflected in spontaneous functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) signal fluctuations.  ...  Figure 1 illustration was made with assistance from A. Robinson, in association with InPrint at  ...

EEG Correlates of Self-Referential Processing

Gennady G. Knyazev
2013 Frontiers in Human Neuroscience  
In this review, I discuss studies, which employed both these approaches and show that in line with fMRI evidence, EEG correlates of self-referential processing are most frequently found in brain regions  ...  Firstly, because simultaneous registration of EEG and fMRI has become possible, the degree of overlap between these two signals in brain regions related to self-referential processing could be determined  ...  Together with studies reporting reduced attention to the external environment, these correlations suggest a reduction of activity in brain regions associated with externally directed attention and a potential  ...
