Abstract

Intrinsic coupling of neuronal assemblies constitutes a key feature of ongoing brain activity, yielding the rich spatiotemporal patterns observed in neuroimaging data and putatively supporting cognitive processes. Intrinsic coupling has been investigated in electrophysiological recordings using two types of functional connectivity measures: amplitude and phase coupling. These two coupling modes differ in their likely causes and functions, and have been proposed to provide complementary insights into intrinsic neuronal interactions. Here, we investigate the relationship between amplitude and phase coupling in source-reconstructed electroencephalography (EEG). Volume conduction is a key obstac..
