Optimization of graph construction can significantly increase the power of structural brain network studies [article]

Eirini Messaritaki, Stavros I Dimitriadis, Derek K Jones
2019 bioRxiv   pre-print
Schemes used to construct the graphs that represent the structural brain networks differ in the metrics they use as edge weights and the algorithms they use to define the network topologies.  ...  Structural brain networks derived from diffusion magnetic resonance imaging data have been used extensively to describe the human brain, and graph theory has allowed quantification of their network properties  ...  The point is clear, however, that it is very much worth looking into the optimal scheme for graph construction for each study, because such an investigation can yield a significant gain in the power of  ...
