The brain is organized into a network of specialized networks of nerve cells. 

For such a brain architecture to function, these specialized networks ―each located in a different brain area―  need to be able to communicate with each other. But which conditions are required for communication to take place and which control mechanisms work? 

Researchers at the Bernstein Center Freiburg and colleagues in Spain and Sweden are proposing a new model that combines three seemingly different explanatory models. Their conclusions have now been published in Nature Reviews Neuroscience.
