Spontaneous or intrinsic, i.e. not stimulus- or task-driven, activity in the brain is not noise, but orderly and organized at the level of large scale systems in a series of functional networks that maintain at all times a high level of coherence. Understanding this distributed spatio-temporal structure is critical for understanding neuronal communication and behavior.
