Metabolic networks / Maria Concetta Palumbo [and others] -- 9. The human brain network / Olaf Sporns -- 10. Brain network analysis from high-resolution EEG signals / Fabrizio De Vico Fallani and Fabio Babiloni -- 11. An optimization approach to the structure of the neuronal layout of C. elegans / Alex Arenas, Alberto Fernández, and Sergio Gómez -- 12. Cultured neuronal networks express complex patterns of activity and morphological memory / Nadav Raichman [and others] -- 13. Synchrony and precise timing in complex neural networks / Raoul-Martin Memmesheimer and Marc Timme -- 14. Ideas for moving beyond structure to dynamics of ecological networks / Daniel B. Stouffer, Miguel A. Fortuna, and Jordi Bascompte -- 15. Evolutionary models for simple biosystems / Franco Bagnoli -- 16. Evolution of cooperation in adaptive social networks / Sven Van Segbroeck [and others] -- 17. From animal collectives and complex networks to decentralized motion control strategies / Arturo Buscarino [and others] -- 18. Interplay of network state and topology in epidemic dynamics / Thilo Gross.
Summary: Networked systems are all around us. The accumulated evidence of systems as complex as a cell cannot be fully understood by studying only their isolated constituents, giving rise to a new area of interest in research - the study of complex networks. In a broad sense, biological networks have been one of the most studied networks, and the field has benefited from many important contributions. By understanding and modeling the structure of a biological network, a better perception of its dynamical and functional behavior is to be expected. This unique book compiles the most relevant results and novel insights provided by network theory in the biological sciences, ranging from the structure and dynamics of the brain to cellular and protein networks and to population-level biology.
