Summary: Brain networks are spatially and functionally fluid, and not static, as previously believed.

The shape and connectivity of brain networks — discrete areas of the brain that work together to perform complex cognitive tasks — can change in fundamental and recurring ways over time, according to a led by Georgia State University.
The interaction and communication among neurons, known as “functionally connectivity,” gives rise to brain networks. Researchers have long assumed these networks are spatially static and a fixed set of brain regions contribute to each network. But in a new study published in Human Brain Mapping, Georgia State researchers find evidence that brain networks are spatially and functionally fluid.
