Developing Neurons Act Locally to Build Globally

Spontaneous activity correlation patterns are computed by selecting a seed point (green square), and comparing how well spontaneous activity in that cortical region is correlated with the remaining locations in the field of view. Correlation patterns show a striking widespread modular organization with patches of positively correlated activity (red regions) separated by patches of negatively correlated activity (blue regions).
