Disorderly genius: How chaos drives the brain

"Small-world networks lie somewhere between regular networks, where each
node is connected to its nearest neighbours, and random networks, which have
no regular structure but many long-distance connections between nodes at
opposite sides of the network (see diagram). Small-world networks take the
most useful aspects of both systems. In places, the nodes have many
connections with their neighbours, but the network also contains random and
often long links between nodes that are very far away from one another."
