Abstract

Communication between neural elements underpins all aspects of brain functioning. Large-scale neural signalling unfolds atop the human connectome, the complex network that describes how gray matter regions are interconnected by white matter projections. The mechanisms governing the propagation and communication of signals across the connectome remain unknown. The main focus of this thesis is the investigation of network communication models aimed at elucidating how the anatomical substrate of nervous systems facilitates and constrains functional interactions between gray matter regions. To date, the vast majority of network neuroscience studies have assumed neural signalling occurs via topo..
