Spatial Structure of Intrinsic Activity

Spatial Structure of Intrinsic Activity

(p.73) Chapter 4 Spatial Structure of Intrinsic Activity
Unlocking the Brain

Georg Northoff

Oxford University Press

From Chapter 4 onwards, the book switches from the brain’s extrinsic activity, e.g., stimulus-induced activity, as discussed in the first part on sparse coding, to the brain’s intrinsic activity, the activity that the brain generates by itself and that stems from inside the brain. The brain’s intrinsic activity is very much based on its anatomical structure. As an alternative to the traditional medial-lateral and subcortical-cortical distinction, The book here, based on neuroanatomical data, suggests a threefold anatomical structure. This threefold anatomical structure proposes three rings—inner, middle, and outer—that extend and span from subcortical to cortical regions.

Keywords:   anatomical structure, medial-lateral, subcortical-cortical, three rings, resting state, baseline, intrinsic activity, default-mode network, midline regions, difference-based coding, spatial structure
