Homophily and Influence in Social Networks

See this post for an explanation of what this means, and the last section of my paper with Andrew Thomas (link below) for the technical/methodological questions which most interest me in this area.

Query: to what extent do the same problems show up when looking at other sorts of networks, say of neurons, or of gene regulatory elements?

Somewhat arbitrarily, I have put references on defining causal effects and counter-factuals under experiments on social networks.
