Striatal dopamine 2/3 receptor (D2/3R) availability is related to working memory-induced functional connectivity changes in the default mode network, and this mediates the relationship between D2/3Rs and task performance.
Noninvasive stimulation of hippocampal networks increases connectivity in a functionally-specific manner that is highly relevant to effective episodic memory performance that depends on the targeted network.
Human primary olfactory cortical regions can be parcellated into anatomically distinct areas based on whole-brain functional connectivity profiles, suggesting distinct, parallel functional pathways in the human olfactory system.
Focal optogenetic stimulation strengthens functional connectivity between primary somatosensory and motor cortices in macaques, in a manner consistent with a Hebbian model of stimulus-driven plasticity.
Targeted recordings from subcortical projection neurons in the auditory cortex reveal two cell classes with distinct signatures of sensory processing and different patterns of local and long-range connectivity.
