The functional structure of the brain

The Connectome (English connectome) refers to the entirety of the connections in the nervous system. Excitation runs from the receptors towards the successful organ. During an activity, these connectome fibers become active and not areas in the network. So these connectome fibers with all their con- and divergence realize the brain functions. This idea alone would be/is a huge paradigm shift. A comparison: "Can't see the forest for the trees (connectome fibers)."

In this structure, the astrocytes are not located in functional parts, but act between them. Since an astrocyte feeds multiple neurons, it records their consumption. If one neuron consumes a lot, the other neurons supplied have less.

Conclusion: the neurons do and the many astrocytes evaluate this action energetically.
