Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Brain connectivity of the human brain represents the statistical dependence and information flow between cortical regions. Brain connectivity, including structural connectivity, functional connectivity and effective connectivity, significantly contributes to the study of brain functions and underlying mechanisms. Brain connectivity has a wide range of applications in brain–computer interfaces, neural modulation, neural rehabilitations, plasticity and learning, and brain-inspired intelligences, etc. Recent advances in data acquisition make data-driven analysis methods possible and have had a fruitful contribution to our knowledge about the brain dynamics and its connections.

The aim of this Special Issue is to gather the efforts of experts from various disciplines and to publish original research articles covering advances in the theory, technique, and applied aspects of brain dynamics and connectivity. In this framework, diverse information processing analysis and modeling techniques will be discussed to study the statistical and dynamical properties of brain activities.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Brain dynamics and connectivity;
  • Brain connectivity;
  • Brain–computer interfaces;
  • Neural rehabilitation;
  • Brain disorders;
  • Neural plasticity;
  • Brain images;
  • Brain-inspired intelligence;
  • Neuronal dynamics;
  • Spiking neural networks.

Herewith, I encourage the authors to submit their recent results to this Special Issue to capture state-of-the-art research in the various aspects of complex network theory.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Mathematics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
