In July 4, 2012，Cerebral Cortex published a cover story on the human functional connectome centrality study conducted by Xi-Nian Zuo and his colleagues. Dr. Zuo was awarded a distinguished full research professorship at the Institute of Psychology and a “Hundred Talents Program” researcher in CAS. He is now the PI of the Laboratory for Functional Connectome and Development, which is part of the Key Laboratory of Behavioral Science at the institute. This work first completed the implementation of the whole brain functional network (i.e., the functional connectome) at a spatial resolution of 4mm (see the illustration from the cover) and further revealed functional communities in the human brain. These findings will provide both theoretical and methodological basis for mining brain-mind association, delineating the growth charts of the human brain function as well as exploring the mechanism on brain disorders. During past 10 months since its online publication, the paper has been cited by various high impact journals including Neuroimage, Journal of Neuroscience, Biological Psychiatry, PNAS, Molecular Psychiatry, etc.
