ON THE COVER:
Recent studies of anesthetic-induced unconsciousness have focused on functional brain connectivity patterns, but questions about the dynamic nature of these connectivity patterns remain unanswered. In this issue of Anesthesiology, three original research articles examine dynamic cortical connectivity during general anesthesia in human volunteers and surgical patients, demonstrating that there is no single fixed state of cortical connectivity during general anesthesia. In an accompanying Editorial View, Sleigh and Pullon compare the function of the conscious brain to that of an orchestra making music with an evolving balance of synchrony and syncopation, harmony and dissonance, regularity and surprise.
