It is nowadays recognized that the concurrence of several areas is required by the brain to instantiate a specific behavior/functioning. A central issue in neuroscience is therefore to study brain functional connectivity and brain networks as ensembles of distant areas that preferentially exchange information. In the last decade, physics applied to neuroscience significantly contributed to methods and techniques. In this talk, I will discuss how novel methods using non-invasive neuroimaging techniques, such as functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and Magnetoencephalography (MEG), can further provide insights into functional connectivity of the working human brain with unrivalled spatial and spatiotemporal resolution.
