[…] were retained as non-zero elements in a binary adjacency matrix or, equivalently, edges between regional nodes in a graph of the structural covariance network. brain networks were visualized using brainnet viewer () (, we used the whole genome expression atlas of the adult human brain created by the allen institute for brain science […]

PMCID: 5932404
PMID: 29755402
DOI: 10.3389/fneur.2018.00280

[…] across frequency bands. cognitive-behavioral correlation analyses were conducted using the matlab statistics toolbox (the mathworks, inc.). networks were visualized and figures produced using brainnet viewer ()., all clinical outcome measures were greater in the concussion group than the control group (conners, t = 2.52, p = 0.02; gad7, t = 2.44, p = 0.02; phq9, t = 3.36, p = 0.002; scat2 […]

DOI: 10.3389/fnbeh.2018.00060

[…] two conditions (p < 0.05 level) creating a simple graph visualization of the differences between the conditions across all subjects. the brain visualization of the graph was conducted with the brainnet viewer (xia et al., )., the depna was computed for each subject for each period (i.e., high- and low-anger) resulting in an “influencing degree” for each region (figure ). we then conducted […]
