Bright points, small and short lifetime structures, appear permanentely in the solar atmopsphere and could be consideres as intermittent energetic burst. They could be the result of the superpositioon of non-observable small scales events, characterized by an intensity distribution that follows a powerlaw, as obtained in SOC and MHD models. Several brights points are indentifiable in the quiet Sun observed by EIT/SoHO. We have performed a statistical analysis in those brights points in order to determine the index of the power law and to compare this index with the models's one.
