On the use of resting-state MEG functional connectivity to study neurological diseases

In this talk, we will present recent advances on the application of MEG functional connectivity analysis to study neurological diseases. Concretely, we will show how MEG activity is mediated by the deposition of beta-amyloid plaques in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease, and how interictal resting state MEG functional connectivity has the potential to localize the focus of epileptic activity by using advanced graph theory methods. Finally, we will outline the potential and associated difficulties of these promising approaches to improve our understanding of the neural correlates of brain pathologies
