Abnormal static and dynamic functional connectivity of resting-state fMRI in multiple system atrophy


Figure 7. Statistical analysis procedure. At the first stage, comparison and correlation analysis was performed for static and dynamic features separately. At the second stage, significantly different and correlated features were combined. At the third stage, significant features found by static and dynamic functional connectivity were merged, as well as incorporating dynamic stability measurements. The circle-plus sign stands for intersection. sFeat, static feature; dFeat, dynamic feature; corr., correlate; Sig., significant; Feat, feature; diff, difference.
