A novel graph measure for characterizing the functional diversity of brain regions


  • The neighbor dispersion index is a novel graph measure that can characterize functional brain organization in a unique manner compared to other graph metrics.

Why this matters

  • A key challenge in neuroscience is understanding how the topological structure of functional networks is related with the functional diversity of brain regions.

  • This new graph measure could provide insight into how the functional diversity of brain regions is disrupted in neuropsychiatric disorders.
