Abstract

In the present study, we propose a theoretical graph procedure to investigate the communication redundancy in brain networks. By taking into account all the possible paths between pairs of cortical regions, this method captures the network redundancy i.e. a critical resource of the brain enhancing the resilience to neural damages and dysfunctions. As an example for its potential, we apply this procedure to the cortical networks estimated from high-resolution EEG signals in a group of spinal cord injured patients during the attempt of the foot movement. Preliminary results suggest that in the high spectral contents the effects due to the spinal trauma affect the expected redundancy attitude by suppressing mainly the longer alternative pathways between the cortical regions.
