A visualization of the brain, reconstructed from MRI scans, shows tracts of white matter connecting different regions of the brain to one another. A new study that uses computational modeling to investigate brain stimulation finds that stimulating network hubs - areas of the brain that are strongly connected to other parts via white matter - results in the global activation of many brain regions.
