About this Research Topic
In the present issue, a deeper understanding of the cortico-muscular synchronisations in the central and muscular component and their interaction will provide insight into how specific coupling characteristics are modulated by age, autonomic regulation in different physiological states and chronic fatigue. Particular attention will be paid to the identification of state and synchronisation measures specific to complex systems, in order to capture the richness of information transfer expressed in the patterns exchanged between the various nodes of the network, and their sensitivity to different behavioural and structural conditions, in particular dominance of manual control networks.
We will focus on developing novel analytic and computational methods within the network physiology framework, as well as applications to clinical conditions such as multiple sclerosis, muscle dystrophy, neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, sports trauma and injuries.
This Research Topic was formed in collaboration with the Third International Summer Institute of Network Physiology (ISINP 2022).
