Recent approaches to causal modeling rely upon the Causal Markov Condition, which specifies which probability distributions are compatible with a Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG). Further principles are required in order to choose among the large number of DAGs compatible with a given probability distribution. Here we present a principle that we call frugality.(More)

Findings about the anatomical organization of the brain play a central role in several such strategies. Little attention has been paid, however, to the use of network analysis and causal modeling techniques for mechanism discovery. In(More)
