This thesis applied the short-time direct directed transfer function (SdDTF) to time series data recordings from intracranial electrodes that measure the brain's electrical activity to determine the causal influences that occurred between brain regions during a speech production task. The combination of high temporal and spatial resolution of the electrocorticography (ECoG) recordings directly from the cortex render these measurements of brain activity desirable, particularly when analyzing the fine cognitive dynamics involved in word generation.

The dynamic pattern of functional connectivity during a working memory task was investigated by means of the short-time directed transfer function. A clear-cut picture of transmissions was observed with the main centres of propagation located in the frontal and parietal regions, in agreement with imaging studies and neurophysiological hypotheses concerning the mechanisms of working memory. The study of the time evolution revealed that most of the time short-range interactions prevailed, whereas the communication between the main centres of activity occurred more sparsely and changed dynamically in time.
