Recent studies have proposed the controlling regions in the corticocortical network of cats' brain at different scales. Here we study pinning control using a simple model of coupled oscillators assigned to cortical areas in the corticocortical network of cats' brain. We analyze control rank (CR) values of areas in the cortical network. It is found that most of the hubs have bigger CR values than other nodes in the same functional community. Moreover, we analyze the synchrony state of the functional communities in the cortical network, revealing that a community with a larger percentage of pinned nodes inside will be conducive to synchronization.
