Recent simulation and empirical studies suggest that network topology shapes directed connectivity (sometimes referred to as information flow) in brain networks. However, no general relationship has been systematically studied or identified.

A general relationship can describe directed connectivity in brain networks and perturbations of topology predictably alter the direction of information flow. This relationship may have implications for the neurobiology of consciousness across species as well as state transitions in humans.
