Functional connectivity

Functional connectivity is the main tool that I have used to investigate inter-individual differences in brain function. I have shown that functional networks in the aging brain are less segregated than those in younger individuals. In other work, I have illustrated the contribution of state and trait factors to the functional connectivity that we measure in a particular individual for a given task.
