Discovering Sex and Age Implicator Edges in the Human Connectome

  title={Discovering Sex and Age Implicator Edges in the Human Connectome},
  author={L{\'a}szl{\'o} Keresztes and Evelin Szogi and B{\'a}lint Varga and Vince Grolmusz},
Determining important vertices in large graphs (e.g., Google’s PageRank in the case of the graph of the World Wide Web) facilitated the construction of excellent web search engines, returning the most important hits corresponding to the submitted user queries. Interestingly, finding important edges – instead of vertices – in large graphs has received much less attention until now. Here we examine the human structural braingraph (or connectome), identified by diffusion magnetic resonance imaging… Expand

Graph Theoretical Analysis Reveals: Women’s Brains Are Better Connected than Men’s
It is shown that the average female connectome has more edges, is a better expander graph, has larger minimal bisection width, and has more spanning trees than the average male connectome, which shows that the female brain has better graph theoretical properties, in a sense, than the brain of males. Expand
The Frequent Complete Subgraphs in the Human Connectome
The mapping of the frequent complete subgraphs of the human brain networks gives robust substructures in the graph: if a subgraph is present in the 80% of the graphs, then, most probably, it could not be an artifact of the measurement or the data processing workflow. Expand
The Frequent Network Neighborhood Mapping of the human hippocampus shows much more frequent neighbor sets in males than in females
The new method of the Frequent Network Neighborhood Mapping for the connectome, which serves as a robust identification of the neighborhoods of given vertices of special interest in the graph, is introduced and strong statistical asymmetries between the connectomes of the sexes are discovered.

Comparing advanced graph-theoretical parameters of the connectomes of the lobes of the human brain
Comparing numerous graph parameters in the three largest lobes—frontal, parietal, temporal—and in both hemispheres of the human brain is compared, and some findings are presented, never described before, including that the right parietal lobe contains significantly more edges, has higher average degree, density, larger minimum vertex cover and Hoffman bound than the leftParietal lobe.

The frequent subgraphs of the connectome of the human brain
The present contribution describes the frequent connected subgraphs of at most six edges in the human brain, and analyzes these frequent graphs and examines sex differences in these graphs: numerous connected sub graphs that are more frequent in female or male connectomes. Expand
Good neighbors, bad neighbors: the frequent network neighborhood mapping of the hippocampus enlightens several structural factors of the human intelligence on a 414-subject cohort
This work uses the braingraphs, computed from the imaging data of the Human Connectome Project’s 414 subjects, each with 463 anatomically identified nodes, to identify frequent neighbor-sets of the hippocampus, which may influence numerous psychological parameters, including intelligence-related ones.

The database of high resolution structural connectomes and the brain graph tools
Based on the data of the NIH-funded Human Connectome Project, structural connectomes of 426 human subjects are computed in five different resolutions of 83, 129, 234, 463 and 1015 nodes and several edge weights in anatomically annotated GraphML format that facilitates better further processing and visualization. Expand
High-resolution directed human connectomes and the Consensus Connectome Dynamics
The robustness of the edge directing method in four independently chosen connectome datasets is found: it is found that 86% of the edges, which were present in all four datasets, get the same directions in all datasets; therefore the direction method is robust. Expand
The Database with more than 1000 Robust Human Structural Connectomes in Five Resolutions.
This dataset makes possible the access to these graphs for scientists unfamiliar with neuroimaging- and connectome-related tools: mathematicians, physicists, and engineers can use their expertize and ideas in the analysis of the connections of the human brain. Expand
The Graph of Our Mind
The male and female braingraphs graph-theoretically are analyzed and statistically significant differences in numerous parameters between the sexes are shown: the female braedraphs are better expanders, have more edges, larger bipartition widths, and larger vertex cover than the bras of the male subjects.
