Abstract

Acknowledging that causal localization of function in a processing network requires a multi-lesion analysis, this paper presents a rigorous and efficient method for defining and calculating the functional contributions of network elements as well as their interactions. The method's applicability to biological networks is demonstrated in the investigation of spatial attention in cats via lesion and reversible deactivation experiments.
