Using single-cell laser scanning photostimulation (LSPS) combined with broad-field calcium imaging, we measured the functional connectivity of neuronal cultures before and after the developmental appearance of network bursting. From these data, network properties were determined for these relatively large neuronal networks. Based on these properties, we found that although ‘small-world’ network behavior existed throughout this time period, only average node degree and global efficiency correlate with the development of network bursting while clustering and local efficiency remained relatively constant.
