Emerging hubs in phantom perception connectomics

Publication date: Available online 4 February 2016 Source:NeuroImage: Clinical Author(s): Anusha Mohan, Dirk De Ridder, Sven Vanneste Brain networks are small-world networks typically characterized by the presence of hubs, i.e. nodes that have significantly greater number of links in comparison to other nodes in the network. These hubs act as short cuts in the network and promote long-distance connectivity. Long-distance connections increase the efficiency of information transfer but also increase the cost of the network. Brain disorders are associated with an altered brain connectome which reflects either as a complete change in the network topology, as in, the replacement of hubs or as an alteration in the connectivity between the hubs while retaining network structure.
