We made the cover!!

Cover Picture: Large portions of the human cerebellum in the lateral and posterior hemispheres are functionally coupled with distinct regions in prefrontal cortex, while the anterior cerebellum is preferentially correlated with primary motor cortex. Spontaneous BOLD fluctuations measured during passive task states are constrained by known anatomical projections and can reflect polysynaptic connectivity; for these reasons functional connectivity MRI is a powerful method for mapping the topography of human cerebro-cerebellar circuits. See Krienen and Buckner. 2009. Segregated fronto-cerebellar circuits revealed by intrinsic functional connectivity. Cereb Cortex 19(10): 2498–2510.
Cover Picture: The social world of humans is complex and places great processing demands on the brain. The cover illustrates an individual’s social network, generated by the Facebook application Nexus. Each white node in the graph represents a person, and the edges connecting them are colored to emphasize differential social closeness—blue edges, clustered around the enlarged white center node, represent close social bonds, while bonds with those who are less socially close are colored orange. In their paper, Krienen et al. find that brain systems including medial prefrontal cortex (MPFC) are preferentially responsive when making inferences about others who are socially close to us, even if we believe we do not share their views. For more information, see the article by Krienen et al. in this issue (pages 13906–13915).
