The human brain is a complex information processing system whose proper functioning depends on the organization of its processing units. The scale of these processing units spans multiple levels from the genetic to systems level. A complete understanding of any 1 of these levels necessitates understanding each level because they are interdependent. Functional magnetic resonance imaging has revolutionized the understanding of the functional and structural architecture of the brain and serves as the lens through which we will review this complex system. This chapter reviews cortical circuitry and networks of the cerebral cortex.
