The problem of the definition and evaluation of brain connectivity has become a central one in neuroscience during recent years as a way to understand the organization and interaction of cortical areas during the execution of cognitive or motor tasks. In this article, we propose the use of the directed transfer function (DTF) method on cortical signals estimated from high-resolution electroencephalography (EEG) recordings. An application of the proposed technique to the estimation of the cortical connectivity pattern in normal subjects and in one spinal-cord-injured patient is also provided.
