Our brain is one of the most complex systems in nature. How does it support a variety of complex cognition and behavior in humans? In this talk, I will first introduce how to describe the functional organization of brain through brain imaging techniques and complex network methods, as well as their application in cognition and brain diseases. Then I will introduce a dynamic brain network method (describing neural flexibility) based on probabilistic model framework and complexity measurement, and the plasticity effect of long-term motor skill training on the neural flexibility of sensory-motor system. This series of work provides an important methodological framework for exploring the relationship between brain and behavior from the perspective of network dynamics and complexity science, and also offers new insights into the functional organization of brain and its plasticity.
