In BrainWork, we try to cover stories from the cutting edge of brain research. When a respected scientific journal devotes its cover to a topic we’re covering, and the two publications mail the same week, it shores up my confidence that our story selection is strong.
Take a look at Kayt Sukel’s interesting article, “A Brain at Rest Tends to Stay … in Motion,” in the newly posted May-June BrainWork. A pair of articles in the May 3 Nature take a more complex look at the topic: “Unconscious networking” (in the News & Views section) and “Intrinsic functional architecture in the anaesthetized monkey brain” (a research letter). Accessing the Nature articles requires a subscription or one-time payment.
Two points in favor of Kayt’s story: it reads easily and is available free.
