  Social network - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Social network theory in the social sciences began with the urbanization studies of the "Manchester School" (centered around Max Gluckman), done mainly in Zambia during the 1960s.
Eigenvector centrality is a measure of the importance of a node in a network.
Network or global-level density is the proportion of ties in a network relative to the total number possible (sparse versus dense networks).

 Felix Stalder: Actor-Network-Theory and Communication Networks   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-22)
In a valid coin this network of allies is tightly sealed and it is almost impossible to question the connections of those networks for an individual using the coins (and thus becoming a part of the network of the coins)1.
Networks allow actors to translate their objectives, be it conscious human choice or prescription of an object, into other actors and adding the other actors' power to their own.
In sociology, to begin with the closest relative of the Actor-Network Theory, the Parsonian Systems Theory is revived and revised as 'Neofunctionalism' (Colomy, 1992) and Berkley sociologist Manuel Castells, albeit from a different vantage point, uses the network as the central metaphor in his The Rise of the Network Society (1996).

 Actor-Network Theory
Actor-Network Theory (ANT) is an interdisciplinary approach to the social sciences and technology studies, and closely relates to research in terms of complexity and locality, activity theory, the sociology of knowledge and systems theory.
ANT was applied to Information Systems by Tatnall and Gilding in 1999, after its extensive use in geographical systems analysis continuing through its peak in the 1990's.
Key ideas for the discourses of Information, Complexity and Design: The ANT perspective attempts to explain and interpret social and technological evolution using neither technical-material nor social reductionism, but rather it incorporates a 'principle of generalized symmetry', that what is human and non-human should be integrated into the same conceptual framework.

We can zoom in and out on simulated neurons, change their simulated firing rates, and see what happens in great detail, without gettings disturbing any live tissue.
There are several types of computer models of the brain, including “connectionist networks” or “artificial neural networks” (shown here) and “conductance-based models.” The first are not very realistic but are relatively simple and thereby suited to the study of large groups of neurons.
The second kind of model is more realistic but more computationally intensive, and so better suited to the study of small groups of neurons.
