The resulting rewiring scenarios showed a spatial layout of the connectivity structure, in which topologically segregated modules correspond to spatially segregated regions, and these regions are linked by long-range connections (see Figure 1, A and B). Greater realism and increased efficiency and robustness of the symbiosis of activity and structure is achieved compared to non-spatial adaptive rewiring. Thus, the principle of locally biased adaptive rewiring may explain both the topological connectivity structure and spatial distribution of connections between neuronal units in a large-scale cortical architecture.
