Schizophrenia, a mental disorder that is characterized by abnormal social behaviour and failure to distinguish one’s own thoughts and ideas from reality, has been associated with structural abnormalities in the architecture of functional brain networks. In this article, we (1) investigate whether mesoscale network properties give relevant information to distinguish groups of patients from controls in different scenarios and (2) use this lens to examine network effects of different antipsychotic… Expand
Brain Networks Reveal the Effects of Antipsychotic Drugs on Schizophrenia Patients and Controls
TLDR
This is one of the first studies to directly compare different medications using a whole-brain graph theoretical analysis with accompanying behavioral data and lays the groundwork for an objective methodology with which to calculate and compare the efficacy of different treatments of mind and brain disorders.

TLDR
The proposed distribution-guided network thresholding (DNT) method can adaptively yield FC-specific threshold for each connection in brain networks, thus preserving the diversity of temporal correlation among brain regions. Expand
Topological data analysis of task-based fMRI data from experiments on schizophrenia
TLDR
This paper uses persistent homology to analyze networks that are constructed from task-based fMRI data from schizophrenia patients, healthy controls, and healthy siblings of schizophrenia patients and finds that the members of the sibling cohort have topological features that are distinct from the other two cohorts.

A community-based topological distance for brain-connectome classification
TLDR
This work proposes a metric based on modularity and Jaccard index to measure differences among brain-connectivity weighted networks built from diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance data and indicates that the proposed metric outperforms those previously published distances. Expand
Altered functional connectivity during evaluation of self-relevance in women with borderline personality disorder
TLDR
The first neuroimaging study about self-relevance processing in BPD is introduced, which shows that valence affects the functional connectivity during self- relevance ratings. Expand

Change in brain network topology as a function of treatment response in schizophrenia: a longitudinal resting-state fMRI study using graph theory
TLDR
This work lends support to the concept of schizophrenia as a dysconnectivity syndrome, and suggests that faulty brain network topology in schizophrenia is modulated by antipsychotic medication as a function of treatment response. Expand
Functional Connectivity and Brain Networks in Schizophrenia
TLDR
It is concluded that people with schizophrenia tend to have a less strongly integrated, more diverse profile of brain functional connectivity, associated with a less hub-dominated configuration of complex brain functional networks. Expand
Disrupted small-world networks in schizophrenia.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the brain functional networks had efficient small-world properties in the healthy subjects; whereas these properties were disrupted in the patients with schizophrenia, consistent with a hypothesis of dysfunctional integration of the brain in this illness. Expand
Abnormal rich club organization and functional brain dynamics in schizophrenia.
TLDR
These findings provide novel biological evidence that schizophrenia is characterized by a selective disruption of brain connectivity among central hub regions of the brain, potentially leading to reduced communication capacity and altered functional brain dynamics. Expand

TLDR
Network methods are increasingly applied in a clinical context, and their promise for elucidating neural substrates of brain and mental disorders is discussed. Expand
The relationship between regional and inter‐regional functional connectivity deficits in schizophrenia
TLDR
The extent to which inter‐regional correlation was reduced between a pair ofgray matter regions was found to be strongly correlated with the extent of local decoherence evident within the gray matter regions per se, which suggests measurement of aberrant functional connectivity in schizophrenia is both a measurement of altered coupling between regions as well as a measurements of localDecoherence within regions.

The discovery of population differences in network community structure: New methods and applications to brain functional networks in schizophrenia
TLDR
A method based on the normalized mutual information between pairs of modular networks is introduced to show that the community structure of the brain network is significantly altered in schizophrenia, using resting-state fMRI in 19 participants with childhood-onset schizophrenia and 20 healthy participants.

Altered Small-World Brain Networks in Schizophrenia Patients during Working Memory Performance
TLDR
Findings suggest brain connectivity in patients with SZ was more diffuse and less strongly linked locally in functional network at intermediate level of WM when compared to HC, compared to stable highly clustered network topologies in HC. Expand
Frequency-based brain networks: From a multiplex framework to a full multilayer description
TLDR
The main differences in using multiplex networks versus more general multilayer networks when constructing frequency-based brain networks are investigated, concerned with the differences for estimating the algebraic connectivity λ2, which has been related to structural, diffusion, and synchronization properties of networks.
