Relationship Between Individual Differences in EEG Functional Connectivity and Executive Functions
Executive functions are high-level cognitive processes that are associated with controlling and monitoring behavior. Functional connectivity is a statistical characteristic of the relationship between anatomically different, spatially close or remote regions of the brain that interact through spontaneous or induced synchronization. Since executive functions are considered to be domain-oriented processes that implicate a frontal-parietal network, it is possible to apply graph theory to executive functions. Completing an EEG functional connectivity analysis is a way to explore executive functions in a new way. The research is aimed at determining connections between individual differences in EEG functional connectivity and their performance in executive functions.
