We consider the problem of computing the influence of a neuronal structure in a brain network. Abraham et al. (2006) computed this influence by using the Shapley value of a coalitional game corresponding to a directed network as a rating. Kötter et al. (2007) applied this rating to large-scale brain networks, in particular to the macaque visual cortex and the macaque prefrontal cortex. Our aim is to improve upon the above technique by measuring the importance of subgroups of neuronal structures in a different way. This new modeling technique not only leads to a more intuitive coalitional game, but also allows for specifying the relative influence of neuronal structures and a direct extension to a setting with missing information on the existence of certain connections.
