How Your Brain Gets Small (pt. 2)
Listen in to hear Caleb and Bridger’s discussion on an article from Koziol and colleagues entitled “The Small-World Organization of Large-Scale Brain Systems and Relationships with Subcortical Structures”. This article is the second in a series of four where the authors dive into the mysterious world of the brain and our emergent mind. Moving away from a modular or “brain parts” understanding of the brain, the authors focus on the large, network oriented interconnection between brain systems. This episode includes a concluding discussion on the second article.
Here’s the abstract from the article:
Brain structure and function is characterized by large-scale brain systems. However, each system has its own ‘‘small-world’’ organization, with sub-regions, or ‘‘hubs,’’ that have varying degrees of specialization for certain cognitive and behavioral processes. This article describes this small-world organization, and the concepts of functional specialization and functional integration are defined and explained through practical examples. We also describe the development of large-scale brain systems and this small-world organization as a sensitive, protracted process, vulnerable to a variety of influences that generate neurodevelopmental disorders.
