We recently described the presence of distributed intrinsic connectivity networks in the mouse brain homologous to those observed in primates and humans. Here we used complex network analysis to describe the functional topology of the resting mouse brain. We found that the mouse brain can be segregated into four stable and anatomically plausible communities that can be associated to known distributed brain functions and related to known connectional partitions of the human brain. These initial results suggest that the mouse brain conserves fundamental topological properties that are also seen in higher species.
