Kaiser M. Neuroanatomy: connectome connects fly and Mammalian brain networks. Curr Biol. 2015;25(10):R416-8.
A recent study shows that brain connectivity in Drosophila melanogaster follows a small-world, modular and rich-club organisation that facilitates information processing. This organisation shows a striking similarity with the mammalian brain.
