Altered brain network centrality in patients with mild cognitive impairment: an fMRI study using a voxel-wise degree centrality approach

The mean DC values of altered brain regions. Compared with the HCs, the DC values of the following regions were decreased to various extents: 1- left ITG (BA 55, t = -5.1646). Compared with the HCs, the DC values of the following regions were increased to various extents: 2- left SMA (t = 4.68734), 3- right fusiform (t = 4.6357). Abbreviations: DC, Degree centrality; HCs, healthy controls; BA, Brodmann's area;ITG, inferior temporal gyrus; SMA, supplementary motor area.
