Cognitive states are involving in our daily life, which motivates us to explore them and understand them by a vast variety of perspectives. Among these perspectives, brain connectivity is increasingly receiving attention in recent years. It is the right time to summarize the past achievements, serving as a cornerstone for the upcoming progress in the field. In this chapter, the definition of the cognitive state is first given and the cognitive states that are frequently investigated are then outlined. The introduction of approaches for estimating connectivity strength is followed. Subsequently, each cognitive state is separately described and the progress in cognitive state investigation is summarized, including analysis, understanding, and decoding. We concentrate on the literature ascertaining macro-scale representations of cognitive states from the perspective of brain connectivity and give an overview of achievements related to cognitive states to date, especially within the past ten years. The discussions and future prospects are stated at the end of the chapter.
