Resting-state functional connectivity abnormalities correlate with psychometric hepatic encephalopathy score in cirrhosis.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Neurocognitive impairment is a common complication of cirrhosis and regarded as the important characteristic for early stage of hepatic encephalopathy (HE). This study aimed toExpand

Aberrant salience network and its functional coupling with default and executive networks in minimal hepatic encephalopathy: a resting-state fMRI study
The purposes of this study are to explore functional alterations in salience network (SN) and its functional coupling with default mode (DMN) and central executive (CEN) networks in minimal hepaticExpand

Identifying minimal hepatic encephalopathy in cirrhotic patients by measuring spontaneous brain activity
It has been demonstrated that minimal hepatic encephalopathy (MHE) is associated with aberrant regional intrinsic brain activity in cirrhotic patients. However, few studies have investigated whetherExpand

Altered dynamic functional connectivity in the default mode network in patients with cirrhosis and minimal hepatic encephalopathy
PurposeAbnormal brain intrinsic functional connectivity (FC) has been documented in minimal hepatic encephalopathy (MHE) by static connectivity analysis. However, changes in dynamic FC (dFC) remainExpand

Brain Microstructural Abnormalities in Patients With Cirrhosis Without Overt Hepatic Encephalopathy: A Voxel-Based Diffusion Kurtosis Imaging Study.
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to investigate whole-brain microstructural abnormalities and their correlation with cognitive impairment in patients with cirrhosis using diffusion kurtosis imaging (DKI).Expand

Disrupted Brain Intrinsic Networks and Executive Dysfunction in Cirrhotic Patients without Overt Hepatic Encephalopathy
Objective Patients with cirrhosis often exhibit cognitive deficits, particularly executive dysfunction, which is considered a predictor of overt hepatic encephalopathy (OHE). We examined brainExpand

Aberrant topological organization of the functional brain network associated with prior overt hepatic encephalopathy in cirrhotic patients
A higher risk of cognitive impairments has been found after an overt hepatic encephalopathy (OHE) episode in cirrhotic patients. We investigated the effect of prior OHE episodes on the topologicalExpand

Reduced Cortical Complexity in Cirrhotic Patients with Minimal Hepatic Encephalopathy
Purpose Gray matter volume loss, regional cortical thinning, and local gyrification index alteration have been documented in minimal hepatic encephalopathy (MHE). Fractal dimension (FD), anotherExpand

Identification of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Based on Diffusion Tensor Imaging and Support Vector Machine
Objectives: White matter (WM) impairments involving both motor and extra-motor areas have been well-documented in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). This study tested the potential of diffusionExpand
