There are two major networks in a brain: biological neural network and functional brain network. The former captures the structural connectivity and the latter captures the functional connectivity. Biological neural network is often referred as a 'connectome' and the term "connectomics" refers the scientific movement to map the entire network structure.
Is there a backbone structure in brain and can we find it^1?
Importance of long-range connections^2.
Comparing structures of man-made circuits to brain networks[^3].
