Dynamic analysis techniques
Analysis techniqueDescriptionState variableSpatial scaleTemporal scale
Point process/neural avalanche FC is driven by discrete events in rs-fMRI when different ROIs coactivate together Level of activity of a single ROI Very similar to average FC and the SC input Coordination is seen in the shortest scales (∼ 1 s) 
Quasiperiodic pattern A specific spatiotemporal pattern observed in rs-fMRI that repeats itself over the length of the scan Phase during the spatiotemporal pattern template Specific nodes go through a sequence of activation and inactivation Pattern (20 s) Occur (2/3 per min) 
Recurrent quantification analysis A sequence of similar ROI activity and/or trajectories that appear to repeat over time Level of activity across the whole network at a single point in time Repeating firing patterns over time Medium (∼ 10–20 s) 
K-means clustering of FC matrices Multiple stable FC states that transition between each other Windowed FC matrices at ∼ 45 s Local networks embedded in the larger SC that coordinate processing for a stable period of time Longest (45 s–1 min)
