Disturbance of thalamic metabolism and its association with regional neural dysfunction and cognitive impairment in minimal hepatic encephalopathy.
PURPOSE To conduct the first investigation on thalamic metabolic alterations in minimal hepatic encephalopathy (MHE) and elucidate their association with intrinsic neural activity change andExpand
Brain Cortical Complexity Alteration in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: A Preliminary Fractal Dimensionality Study
Objective Fractal dimensionality (FD) analysis provides a quantitative description of brain structural complexity. The application of FD analysis has provided evidence of amyotrophic lateralExpand
