"Mental disorders often involve difficulty with complex cognitive functions, such as decision making, emotional self-regulation, or behavioral adaptation to changing circumstances. Those functions arise from the carefully timed and orchestrated synchrony of activity across multiple structures1—in other words, from network activity. It should therefore be possible to treat mental disorders by identifying abnormalities in that network activity and restoring them to healthy patterns. "
