Abstract: Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) provides a valuable window into the large-scale network organization of the human brain. Recent work has also demonstrated the potential for fMRI to track dynamic internal states on time-scales of seconds to minutes. In this talk, we will discuss our studies on investigating the dynamics of fMRI signals and linking whole-brain fMRI patterns with physiological states, such as levels of wakefulness. We will also discuss the potential for dynamic fMRI patterns to provide clinical biomarkers.
