Complex relationships between structural and functional brain connectivity

Trends Cogn Sci. 2013 Dec;17(12):600-2. doi: 10.1016/j.tics.2013.09.011. Epub 2013 Oct 4.


In recent work, O'Reilly and colleagues demonstrate relatively intact interhemispheric functional connectivity in a macaque brain in the absence of major commissural fibers. This work adds to a growing body of literature challenging the notion that structural and functional brain connectivity metrics are related in a straightforward manner.
