Uncovering Stimulus-Induced Network Dynamics during Narrative
Real world cognition requires the coordination of information
processing between modalities (e.g. auditory and visual) and systems
(e.g. language and memory). Therefore, the brain must continually
reorganize interactions between and within networks. I will describe a
new method for mapping these network changes, and how it can reveal
precise and reliable network dynamics during the perception of a
naturalistic narrative stimulus.
