Converging spaces of the human connectome

The structure and connectivity of the cerebral cortex describe distinct spaces of cortical organization. However, recent approaches for low-dimensional representation of the connectome reveal a principal axis that converges with cortical geometry, as well as various other features of cortical specialization.

This layout suggests mechanisms underlying the spatial distribution of cortical functions, and provides a scaffolding for investigating the propagation of information at both local and distributed spatial scales.
