Large scale functional networks connect differently for processing words and symbol strings

PMCID: 5931649
PMID: 29718993
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0196773

[…] on the cortical surface of an atlas brain using freesurfer. for visualization of the connections we used a circular plotting scheme [] in which the nodes were based on an anatomical parcellation (aal, ; []). for this purpose, we transformed the coordinates of the individual subjects to mni (montreal neurological institute) coordinates. mni coordinates were obtained by combining the linear […]


Involvement of the reward network is associated with apathy in cerebral small vessel disease

PMCID: 5884309
PMID: 29481995
DOI: 10.1016/j.jad.2018.02.006

[…] the threshold relating to the ability of deterministic tensor tractography to give a reliable directional information. network nodes were defined on the basis of the automated anatomical labelling (aal) atlas (). for each subject their t1-weighted image was co-registered to their averaged b0 dti map using fsl flirt (, ). a transformation between the t1-image and mni space was calculated using […]


Increased functional connectivity of the posterior cingulate cortex with the lateral orbitofrontal cortex in depression

PMCID: 5915597
PMID: 29691380
DOI: 10.1038/s41398-018-0139-1

[…] have altered connectivity with other brain regions. given that the posterior cingulate cortex has 241 voxels, and that there are 47619 3 × 3 × 3 mm3 voxels in the automated anatomical atlas (aal2) brain, the number of voxel pairs in this study was approximately (241 × 47619/2). this methodology is quite different from, and more statistically powerful than, a whole brain voxel-to voxel […]


Impaired Prefrontal Amygdala Pathway, Self Reported Emotion, and Erection in Psychogenic Erectile Dysfunction Patients With Normal Nocturnal Erection

PMCID: 5928255
PMID: 29740301
DOI: 10.3389/fnhum.2018.00157

[…] by continuous tracking (fact) algorithm and the propagation was terminated if a minimum tracking turning angle was larger than50° or a voxel with fa below 0.2 was encountered (qin et al., )., the automated anatomical labeling (aal) template with 90 regions was employed to define the nodes of the network (tzourio-mazoyer et al., ). the interregional fibers between all possible pairs of brain […]


What We Know About the Brain Structure–Function Relationship

PMCID: 5946098
PMID: 29670045
DOI: 10.3390/bs8040039

[…] into regions utilized (for review, see []). there are different anatomical brain atlases that are used to define the nodes of the connectivity matrices. the most widely used anatomical atlas is the automated anatomical labeling (aal) that comprises 116 rois (nodes) [], which uses the parcellation proposed by hagmann et al. []. the various parcellation schemes differ in the number, shape […]


Human Thalamic Prefrontal Peduncle Connectivity Revealed by Diffusion Spectrum Imaging Fiber Tracking

PMCID: 5913328
PMID: 29719502
DOI: 10.3389/fnana.2018.00024

[…] tpp reconstruction., to determine the cortical terminations and segmentation of the tpp, we imported cortical prefrontal areas from two different atlases, the ba and improved automated anatomical (aal2) atlases (tzourio-mazoyer et al., ; rolls et al., ). dsi studio used linear transformations to register both atlases on a subject's diffusion space., statistical analyses were carried out using […]
