Time evolution of spontaneous network

No single mode of brain connectivity is sufficient to fully explain how brain networks operate. It is sometimes proclaimed that the function of  the  brain  will  become  apparent  once  we  possess  the  brain's  wiring diagram. Such views are overly simplistic, because  the wiring alone does not account for the physiology of neural interactions, for  the  rich  repertoire  of  spontaneous  and  task-dependent  neural responses, or for their temporal patterning. At the same time, dynamic patterns of neural interactions cannot be fully interpreted unless struc­tural connectivity is taken into account. Both structural and functional
networks (or their union in a suitable model of effective connectivity) are needed to fully explain the time evolution of spontaneous network activity or of neural responses to perturbation.
