Abstract

Stability under dynamical changes to network connectivity is invoked alongside previous criteria to constrain brain network architecture. A new hierarchical network is introduced that satisfies all these constraints, unlike more commonly studied regular, random, and small-world networks. It is shown that hierarchical networks can simultaneously have high clustering, short path lengths, and low wiring costs, while being robustly stable under large scale reconnection of substructures.
