Cognition relies on rapid and robust communication between brain areas. Wang et al. leverage multi-day intracranial field potential recordings to characterize the human mesoscopic functional interactome. They validated the methods using monkey anatomical and physiological data. The human interactome reveals small-world properties and is modulated by sleep versus awake state.
