Scholarly publishing’s highest honors were awarded on February 2, 2017, at the 41st Annual PROSE Awards ceremony in Washington, DC.

The book, Fundamentals of Brain Network Analysis, by Alex Fornito, Andrew Zalesky and Edward Bullmore was awarded an Honorable Mention in Biomedicine and Neuroscience.

Fundamentals of Brain Network Analysis is a comprehensive and accessible introduction to methods for unraveling the extraordinary complexity of neuronal connectivity. From the perspective of graph theory and network science, this book introduces, motivates and explains techniques for modeling brain networks as graphs of nodes connected by edges, and covers a diverse array of measures for quantifying their topological and spatial organization.

We are pleased to offer you a free chapter from the book, An Introduction to Brain Networks, below:
