Dynamic causal modelling for MMN

Information processing in the human brain is thought happen in networks comprising multiple areas/neural populations. The dynamics of interaction between areas is hidden in the raw EEG data. Dynamic causal modelling (DCM) helps to infer on the effective connectivity between brain regions from EEG signals using biologically informed models. This talk will give a quick overview on the fundamentals and possible application of DCM to study prediction error signals such as mismatch negativity.
