This chapter tries to remedy the lack of data on the interareal network of the cerebral cortex. It illustrates that the cortical network is dense. It shows the crucial importance of weight and distance information in order to understand this embedded network. It demonstrates that the exponential distance rule (EDR) strongly shapes the cortical network structure. This chapter suggests the proposition of a tribal cortical network that has profound implications for understanding cortical function.

Keywords:   cerebral cortex, exponential distance rule, cortical network structure, tribal cortical network, cortical function
