The human frontal pole (FP) approximately corresponds to Brodmann's area 10 and is a highly differentiated cortical area with unique cytoarchitectonic characteristics. However, its functional diversity is highly suggestive of the existence of functional subregions. Based on anatomical connection patterns derived from diffusion tensor imaging data, we(More)
The superior frontal gyrus (SFG) is located at the superior part of the prefrontal cortex and is involved in a variety of functions, suggesting the existence of functional subregions. However, parcellation schemes of the human SFG and the connection patterns of each subregion remain unclear. We firstly parcellated the human SFG into the anteromedial(More)
The cerebellum contains several cognitive-related subregions that are involved in different functional networks. The cerebellar crus II is correlated with the frontoparietal network (FPN), whereas the cerebellar IX is associated with the default-mode network (DMN). These two networks are anticorrelated and cooperatively implicated in cognitive control,(More)
The human orbitofrontal cortex (OFC) is an enigmatic brain region that cannot be parcellated reliably using diffusional and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) because there is signal dropout that results from an inherent defect in imaging techniques. We hypothesise that the OFC can be reliably parcellated into subregions based on gray matter(More)
Although extensive resting-state functional connectivity (rsFC) changes have been reported in schizophrenia, rsFC changes in the temporal pole (TP) remain unknown. The TP contains several subregions with different connection patterns; however, it is not known whether TP subregions are differentially affected in schizophrenia. Sixty-six schizophrenia(More)
Working memory (WM) is the active maintenance of currently relevant information that was just experienced or retrieved from long-term memory but no longer exists in the external environment; however, the intrinsic functional organization of the brain underlying human WM performance remains largely unknown. We hypothesize that the intrinsic functional(More)
Apolipoprotein E (APOE) and sortilin-related receptor (SORL1) genes act on the same metabolic pathway and have been associated with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) characterized by hippocampal impairment. Although the effects of APOE on hippocampal resting-state functional connectivity (rsFC) have been reported, the main effects of SORL1 and SORL1 × APOE(More)
Diverse brain structural and functional changes have been reported in schizophrenia. Identifying different types of brain changes may help to understand the neural mechanisms and to develop reliable biomarkers in schizophrenia. We aimed to categorize different grey matter changes in schizophrenia based on grey matter volume (GMV) and cerebral blood flow(More)
The sortilin-related receptor 1 (SORL1) gene has been associated with late-onset Alzheimer’s disease (LOAD) and structural impairments in several ethnic populations. However, how this gene affects brain function properties remains unclear. We investigated associations of SORL1 rs2070045 with functional connectivity density (FCD) in healthy young adults.(More)
The human brain is a highly connected and integrated system. Local stroke lesions can evoke reorganization in multiple functional networks. However, the temporally-evolving patterns in different functional networks after stroke remain unclear. Here, we aimed to investigate the dynamic evolutionary patterns of functional connectivity density (FCD) and(More)
