Small-World Propensity Reveals the Frequency Specificity of Resting State Networks
Functional connectivity (FC) is an important indicator of the brain’s state in different conditions, such as rest/task or health/pathology. Here we used high-density electroencephalography coupled to source reconstruction to assess frequency-specific changes of FC during resting state. Specifically, we computed... Read more
Modulating the Structure of Motor Variability for Skill Learning Through Specific Muscle Synergies in Elderlies and Young Adults
Motor variability – performance variations across task repetitions – has been assumed to be undesirable. But recent studies argue that variability facilitates early motor learning by allowing exploratory search of reward-generating motion, and that variability’s structure may be modulated by...

On Error-Related Potentials During Sensorimotor-Based Brain-Computer Interface: Explorations With a Pseudo-Online Brain-Controlled Speller
Brain-computer interface (BCI) spelling is a promising communication solution for people in paralysis. Currently, BCIs suffer from imperfect decoding accuracy which calls for methods to handle spelling mistakes. Detecting error-related potentials (ErrPs) has been early identified as a potential remedy.... Read more

Accelerometry-Based Digital Gait Characteristics for Classification of Parkinson’s Disease: What Counts?
Gait may be a useful biomarker that can be objectively measured with wearable technology to classify Parkinson’s disease (PD). This study aims to: (i) comprehensively quantify a battery of commonly utilized gait digital characteristics (spatiotemporal and signal-based), and (ii) identify... Read more

Predicting Lymphoma Development by Exploiting Genetic Variants and Clinical Findings in a Machine Learning-Based Methodology With Ensemble Classifiers in a Cohort of Sjögren’s Syndrome Patients
Lymphoma development constitutes one of the most serious clinico-pathological manifestations of patients with Sjögren’s Syndrome (SS). Over the last decades the risk for lymphomagenesis in SS patients has been studied aiming to identify novel biomarkers and risk factors predicting lymphoma... Read more
