STUDIES OF LARGE-SCALE BRAIN NETWORKS - SAVIOR OR HYPE?

Cognitive Neuroscience has seen a growing interest in large-scale networks derived from brain imaging. These networks are subject to many speculations and hopes for understanding brain (dys-)function. Yet, the brain's incredibly complex micro-anatomy poses a challenge for any network description and dynamical aspects of brain activity may offer alternative views on brain organization. What actually constitutes a meaningful network? Is it necessary to include fine temporal dynamics to study large scale organization? Is there a trade-off between spatial and temporal scales?
