This review gives a general overview of the organization of complex brain networks at the systems level, in particular in the cerebral cortex of the cat brain. We identify fundamental parameters of the structural organization of cortical networks, illustrate how these characteristics may arise during brain development and how they give rise to robustness of the cortical networks against damage. Moreover, we review potential implications of the structural organization of cortical networks for brain function. © 2007 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
