The pattern of scientific investigation through time cannot be understood in isolation: it must be set against the background of wider trends in the sciences, methodological advancements, and the general culture of the time. Nowadays social, biological, and technological network models dominate approaches to complexity. Telecommunications, social networks, transportation logistics, molecular interactions, and metabolic pathways are just some examples wherein complex dynamics can be described using network analysis. For this reason neuroscientists have adopted a network-based approach to describe the complexity of the nervous system.
