In a recent paper, we find this quote:
The brain contains vast numbers of interconnected neurons that constitute anatomical and functional networks. Structural descriptions of neuronal network elements and connections make up the “connectome” of the brain (Hagmann, 2005; Sporns et al., 2005; Sporns, 2011), and are important for understanding normal brain function and disease-related dysfunction.
This quote is from the first paragraph in: T. B. Leergaard, C. C. Hilgetag and O. Sporns, Mapping the connectome: multi-level analysis of brain connectivity, Front. Neuroinform., 2012.
Question: Understanding which dysfunctions, in particular, is aided by structural descriptions of neuronal networks?
