Highly connected hub nodes of the network are biologically expensive but arguably worth it because they facilitate higher order mental functions. Join Neuroscientist, Ed Bullmore, as he discusses how these high-cost/high-value hubs may also be points of special vulnerability for many brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and schizophrenia.
