Changes in electrophysiological markers of cognitive control after administration of galantamine (2018)
Journal Article
Gascoyne, L., Mullinger, K., Robson, S., Kumar, J., O'Neill, G. C., Palaniyappan, L., …Liddle, P. F. (2018). Changes in electrophysiological markers of cognitive control after administration of galantamine. NeuroImage: Clinical, 20, (228-235). doi:10.1016/j.nicl.2018.07.019

The healthy brain is able to maintain a stable balance between bottom-up sensory processing and top-down cognitive control. The neurotransmitter acetylcholine plays a substantial role in this. Disruption of this balance could contribute to symptoms o... Read More

Altered temporal stability in dynamic neural networks underlies connectivity changes in neurodevelopment (2018)
Journal Article
Brookes, M. J., Groom, M. J., Liuzzi, L., Hill, R. M., Smith, H. J., Briley, P. M., …Liddle, E. B. (2018). Altered temporal stability in dynamic neural networks underlies connectivity changes in neurodevelopment. NeuroImage, 174, doi:10.1016/j.neuroimage.2018.03.008. ISSN 1053-8119

Network connectivity is an integral feature of human brain function, and characterising its maturational trajectory is a critical step towards understanding healthy and atypical neurodevelopment. Here, we used magnetoencephalography (MEG) to investig... Read More

Optimising experimental design for MEG resting state functional connectivity measurement (2016)
Journal Article
Liuzzi, L., Gascoyne, L. E., Tewarie, P. K., Barratt, E. L., Boto, E., & Brookes, M. J. (2017). Optimising experimental design for MEG resting state functional connectivity measurement. NeuroImage, 155, ( 565-576). doi:10.1016/j.neuroimage.2016.11.064. ISSN 1053-8119

The study of functional connectivity using magnetoencephalography (MEG) is an expanding area of neuroimaging, and adds an extra dimension to the more common assessments made using fMRI. The importance of such metrics is growing, with recent demonstra... Read More

Measurement of dynamic task related functional networks using MEG (2016)
Journal Article
O’Neill, G. C., Tewarie, P. K., Colclough, G. L., Gascoyne, L. E., Hunt, B. A., Morris, P. G., …Brookes, M. J. (2017). Measurement of dynamic task related functional networks using MEG. NeuroImage, 146, (667-678). doi:10.1016/j.neuroimage.2016.08.061. ISSN 1053-8119

The characterisation of dynamic electrophysiological brain networks, which form and dissolve in order to support ongoing cognitive function, is one of the most important goals in neuroscience. Here, we introduce a method for measuring such networks i... Read More

A multi-layer network approach to MEG connectivity analysis (2016)
Journal Article
Brookes, M. J., Tewarie, P. K., Hunt, B. A. E., Robson, S. E., Gascoyne, L. E., Liddle, E. B., …Morris, P. G. (2016). A multi-layer network approach to MEG connectivity analysis. NeuroImage, 132, doi:10.1016/j.neuroimage.2016.02.045. ISSN 1053-8119

Recent years have shown the critical importance of inter-regional neural network connectivity in supporting healthy brain function. Such connectivity is measurable using neuroimaging techniques such as MEG, however the richness of the electrophysiolo... Read More
