Abstract

A new paper shows that a characteristic feature of the arrangement of brain networks, their modular organization across several scales, is responsible for an expanded range of critical neural dynamics. This finding solves several puzzles in computational neuroscience and links fundamental aspects of neural network organization and brain dynamics.
