Summary. Anatomical, electrophysiological and functional neuroimaging
studies show that the human brain is a complex network, where cortico-
cortical and thalamo-cortical connections are organized in a specific pattern
giving rise to brain function. In our recent studies we found that chemical
connectivity between brain regions might be changed in different conditions
(e.g. aging, chronic pain, cognitive interference). The elucidation of properties
