Does the human brain work in the same way when it is at rest as when it is being stimulated? In a paper published in “NeuroImage”, Nicolas Gravel and co-authors report that it does. They find that a new method to analyse brain function – based on measuring the phase relationships between the responses in the visual cortex – reveals similar functional clusters during both resting-state and visual field mapping fMRI experiments. This is important information, as resting-state activity is nowadays used to infer many aspects of brain function in health and disease.
