Description

Harmonic patterns are ubiquitous in nature emerging as building blocks of pattern formation in various physical and biological phenomena ranging from sound waves created by an instrument, electron orbits of an atom, electro-magnetic interactions in a grid of ions, to formation of animal coat and shell patterns in morphogenesis. In this talk I will illustrate how these harmonic waves naturally self-organize in brain activity and underlie brain’s complex spatio-temporal dynamics. Decomposition of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data acquired in conscious awake, sleep and psychedelic states into the harmonic modes of brain’s structural connectivity reveals unique characteristics and harmonic signatures of these mental experiences.
