We have known for at least 100 years that the brain is organized as a network of connections between neuronal ensembles. However, only in the last 10 years there has been a rapid growth in our ability to quantify the complex topology of brain networks, using mathematical tools derived from graph theory. In this talk, I will present recent development of graph theoretical approaches to analyze brain networks and model (re)organizational principles of the neural function underlying behavior and outcome, in healthy and diseased conditions. The final part will be devoted to highlight some of the current issues related to complex brain network analysis.
