The BrainModes meeting is an annual meeting that brings together experts from various disciplines and seeks to explore innovative means of understanding complex brain activity and multimodal neuroscience data sets. The objective of these meetings has been to foster informal discussion of multivariate data analysis (EEG, MEG, fMRI, etc) and brain modeling in trying to understand how complex brain activity is organized as “modes” which are useful to relate to brain functions and behavior.

BrainModes will focus on brain oscillatory processes, large-scale networks in functions and dysfunctions. Network oscillations are important both for establishing large-scale networks and understanding the mechanisms of moment-to-moment brain functions and the breakdown of brain functions (dysfunctions). This meeting will discuss recent empirical findings, models and theory to answer the following questions:

  • how are the intrinsic oscillatory processes, neuronal to hemodynamic processes, coupled?
  • how does cognition arise from the collective brain activity of large-scale brain networks with these intrinsic processes as substrates allowing for the moment-to-moment flexibility and variability?
  • what features of large-scale brain network activity can predict brain dysfunctions?
  • what are the recent developments in neuroimaging data analysis methods for large-scale brain network oscillations?
  • what are the theoretical advances in large-scale brain modeling?
