As to the direction of evolution, integration or parcellation
of modules [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 2 OMITTED], the most prevalent direction seems to be parcellation
, at least among metazoan animals.

 Subsequent rsfMRI studies investigated the properties of the functional human brain network using different nodes in mesoscale (voxel-based parcellation
)  or in macroscale (70 regions of interest [ROIs] using the ANIMAL-atlas,  or 90 ROIs using the AAL-atlas ).
These principles include a design which easily allows changes and adaptations, the use of stigmergy, an evolutional approach for patterns of use and structure, parcellation
of the environment, consideration of the entire system in the context of other systems, the level of control exerted by the system designer/administrator, the provision of trust, and the design for sociability.
