Our new paper, a collaboration between Dr. Cohen and Dr. Mark D’Esposito at UC Berkeley, was published today in Journal of Neuroscience. You can find a summary here. We found that brain network organization can dynamically reconfigure when cognitive demands change, and that the balance between segregation into distinct brain networks and integration across multiple brain networks is dependent on the specific cognitive requirements of a task. The more participants were able to achieve the optimal balance between segregation and integration, the better they did on the tasks!
