Adding network approaches to a neurobiological framework of resilience

  • Nava Levit-Binnun (a1) and Yulia Golland (a1)

In their paper, Kalisch et al. make an important attempt to create a unifying theoretical framework for the neuroscientific study of general resilience mechanisms. We suggest that such attempts can benefit tremendously by incorporating the recently emerging network approaches that enable the characterization of complex brain network architecture and dynamics, in both health and disease.
