Research Fellow

Research topic:

  • Dynamic Causal Modeling for resting state fMRI

Methodological topics:

  • fMRI
  • Resting state
  • DCM
  • Effective connectivity

The main focus of my research is the study of causal interactions between different parts of functional resting-state networks which mediate internal modes of cognitive activity. I am particularly interested in revealing the patterns of effective connectivity and clarifying the nodes functions within different functional resting-state networks. I therefore use the Dynamical Causal Modeling approach for quantitative analysis of directed influence that one neuronal system exerts on another.
