From Social Networks to Therapeutics and Connectomics


Social networks and related analysis methods are becoming novel and powerful information processing techniques in therapeutics, drug discovery and systems biology. At the same time, they are permeating into neuroimaging and defined the novel area of ”imaging connectomics” allowing the complete mapping of inter-regional interactions to capture the brain connectivity and its topology [4]. The application of the initial social networks to medical sciences is enabled based on mathematical graph theory.
