Modularity and integration in the adult and developing brain

Abstract: Max Bertolero's work has mostly focused on how the brain maintains a modular processing regime despite the need for integration. He has found that connector hubs, a group of tightly interconnected regions that also have their connections spread across the brain, allow this balance of modularity and integration. Max has also worked on science-of-science projects, like understanding imbalances in neuroscience reference lists against women and authors of color. He is currently seeking to understand the development of connector hubs.
