This Week in Science

In this week's Science, a team led by Stanford University researchers presents a model of correlated gene expression underlying the functional networks that synchronize activity in the resting brain. The core set of 136 expressed genes identified by the researchers are primarily responsible for cellular ion channels and other elements of communication between brain cells, suggesting a link with the construction of functional networks in the brain.
