For each topic existing methods will be examined, developed and tested using approaches from our diverse range of disciplines in order to establish a unified framework for methods across the range of disciplines involved in connectivity science.
Will provide an integrated view of the different methods employed across these topics and disciplines, highlighting commonalities in methods at the operational and theoretical level.
Will synthesize distinct methods that are similar in terms of the theoretical basis and share common ways of quantitatively describing specific aspects of connectivity.
Will create a repository or ‘common toolbox’ of Connectivity Science methods.
Will provide a synthesis of the various approaches to connectivity from the theoretical perspective and also in terms of generalized algorithms that can be usefully applied across a range of applications.
Objectives 2.2, 2.3 and 2.4
will be jointly addressed by ESRs1, 3-7, 9, 10, 11, 15.
