Topological Network Analysis of Early Alzheimer’s Disease Based on Resting-State EEG
Previous studies made progress in the early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) using electroencephalography (EEG) without considering EEG connectivity. To fill this gap, we explored significant differences between early AD patients and controls based on frequency domain and spatial properties using functional connectivity in mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and mild AD datasets...

Estimating Fugl-Meyer Upper Extremity Motor Score From Functional-Connectivity Measures
Fugl-Meyer assessment is an accepted method of evaluating motor function for people with stroke. A challenge associated with this assessment is the availability of trained examiners to carry out the evaluation. Neurophysiological biomarkers show promise in addressing the above impediment....

The identification of Alzheimer’s disease using functional connectivity between activity voxels in resting-state fMRI data
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a common neurodegenerative disease occurring in the elderly population. The effective and accurate classification of AD symptoms by using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has a great significance for the clinical diagnosis and prediction of AD... Read more

Small-World Propensity Reveals the Frequency Specificity of Resting State Networks
Functional connectivity (FC) is an important indicator of the brain’s state in different conditions, such as rest/task or health/pathology. Here we used high-density electroencephalography coupled to source reconstruction to assess frequency-specific changes of FC during resting state. Specifically, we computed... Read more

A Functional-genetic Scheme for Seizure Forecasting in Canine Epilepsy
Epilepsy is a chronic condition characterized by recurrent, spontaneous, and unpredictable seizures resulting from the abnormal and excessive synchronization of groups of neurons. While first line of treatment consists of anti-epileptic medication, about a third of patients are refractory. Epilepsy... Read more

Functional Connectivity Analysis of Mental Fatigue Reveals Different Network Topological Alterations Between Driving and Vigilance Tasks
       Despite the apparent importance of mental fatigue detection, a reliable application is hindered due to the incomprehensive understanding of the neural mechanisms of mental fatigue. In this paper, we investigated the topological alterations of functional brain networks in the theta... Read more
