    Multilayer brain networks can identify the epileptogenic zone and seizure dynamics

    Hossein Shahabi, Dileep R Nair, Richard M Leahy
    Aging and the duration of epilepsy can intensify the high-frequency desynchronization between the epileptogenic zone and the rest of the brain in early to mid-seizure.

    Model-based whole-brain perturbational landscape of neurodegenerative diseases

    Yonatan Sanz Perl, Sol Fittipaldi ... Enzo Tagliazucchi
    The combination of deep learning with whole-brain computational models reveals the low-dimensional representation of neurodegenerative diseases, which emerges from a highly multidimensional brain, providing valuable insight into pathological states' diagnostic, prognosis, and treatment response.

    Distinct roles of forward and backward alpha-band waves in spatial visual attention

    Andrea Alamia, Lucie Terral ... Rufin VanRullen
    Covert visual attention modulates alpha-band traveling waves propagating from frontal to occipital regions in both hemispheres, yet it modulates waves propagating in the opposite direction (occipital to frontal) only in the presence of visual stimulation.
