Some Questions about Neurocognitive Networks

The motivation for Neurocognitive Networks 2010 is to further our understanding of the role played by large-scale functional brain networks in cognition. The conference is designed to explore four important themes in contemporary research on neurocognitive networks: (1) network function; (2) network dynamics; (3) network modeling; and (4) network theory. In my opening address, I will raise some general questions about neurocognitive networks that may help set the stage for the talks that follow.
