Brain Networks

Brain networks connect levels of organization in the brain and link structure to function. Following some basic concepts of network theory and brain connectivity, this new area of  study in neuroscience aims to reveal principles of brain architecture and how structure is essential for a proper function. In this section you will find information about this new  approach and how brain networks can be affected by different neuropaediatric disorders.

The dynamic functional connectivity of the brain and the fMRI: an overview of analytical strategies

Resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is a method of functional brain imaging (i.e., the measurement of the aspect of a brain area by images) that can be used to evaluate regional interactions that occur when a subject is resting. The fMRI has highlighted the rich structure of brain activity in absence of a task or stimulus. […]

Central Serotonin Receptor 7 constitutes a potential therapeutic target for Rett Syndrome

Rett syndrome is a neurodevelopment disorder affecting around 1 out of 10,000 girls, usually due to de novo mutations in the X-located gene MECP2. It is a complex disorder, both clinically and at a molecular level, and is typically characterized by a neurodevelopment regression starting at age 6 to 18 months after a normal early […]
