The geometry of your brain shapes its function: Brain activity may be more like "ripples in a pond" rather than signals sent on a telecommunications network.

Researchers have challenged the conventional "connectomic" view of the brain, suggesting that brain function may be more akin to ripples in a pond than signals in a telecommunication network. They found that their wave model, which uses information about the brain's shape, predicted activation patterns more accurately than neuronal connectivity data. While the study suggests a paradigm shift in understanding brain function, critics argue that the study doesn't consider the local brain activity patterns evoked by simple stimuli.
