Científicos describen cómo la arquitectura de conexiones del cerebro humano controla la actividad neuronal
Spanish scientists have painstakingly described how the architecture of connections in the human brain controls neuronal activity, demonstrating that small avalanches or earthquakes of activity are continuously occurring in the brain, with a huge variability of optimal sizes and shapes, neither exclusively small nor systematically large.
Their work, which could help to further understand the connection between brain structure and dynamics and advance the understanding that human brains have of themselves, is published this week in the prestigious journal Nature Communications.
