The human brain is inherently organized as separate networks, as has been widely revealed by resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Although the large-scale functional connectivity can be partially explained by the underlying white-matter structural connectivity, the question of whether the underlying functional connectivity is related to brain metabolic factors is still largely unanswered. The present study investigated the presence of metabolic covariant networks across…

Evaluation of Functional Connectivity in the Brain Using Positron Emission Tomography: A Mini-Review

TLDR
As PET and fMRI provide different types of information, integrating these modalities may aid in elucidating the pathological mechanisms underlying certain diseases, and in characterizing individual patients.

The Whole-Brain "Global" Signal from Resting State fMRI as a Potential Biomarker of Quantitative State Changes in Glucose Metabolism

TLDR
This work presents the first evidence of a potential R-fMRI biomarker for baseline shifts in quantifiable metabolism between brain states, and variance-based metrics may remain similar between states due to inherent region-to-region differences overwhelming the differences between normal physiological states.

Resting-State Networks as Simultaneously Measured with Functional MRI and PET

TLDR
The results argue for the common neural substrate of RSNs and encourage testing of the clinical utility of resting-state connectivity in PET data.

Metabolic and Hemodynamic Resting-State Connectivity of the Human Brain: A High-Temporal Resolution Simultaneous BOLD-fMRI and FDG-fPET Multimodality Study.

TLDR
High-temporal resolution constant infusion functional positron emission tomography (fPET) was applied to measure subject-level metabolic connectivity simultaneously with fMRI connectivity to highlight the complementary strengths of fPET and fMRI in measuring the intrinsic connectivity of the brain and open up the opportunity for novel fundamental studies of human brain connectivity.

Metabolic and haemodynamic resting-state connectivity of the human brain: a high-temporal resolution simultaneous BOLD-fMRI and FDG-fPET multimodality study

TLDR
High-temporal resolution constant infusion fPET was applied to measure subject-level metabolic connectivity simultaneously with fMRI connectivity, indicating that metabolic brain connectivity is a non-ergodic process whereby individual brain connectivity cannot be inferred from group level metabolic covariance.

TLDR
The strength of the t-MC linearly increased with the metabolic rate of glucose suggesting that t- MC measures are strongly associated with the energy demand of the brain tissue, and could reflect regional differences in glucose metabolism, counterbalanced metabolic network demand, and/or differential time-varying delivery of FDG.

TLDR
Connectivity within this network was significantly stronger in subjects with above-median WM performance, and the results encourage examination of covariant patterns in FDG-PET data from non-neurodegenerative populations.

Metabolic connectivity by interregional correlation analysis using statistical parametric mapping (SPM) and FDG brain PET; methodological development and patterns of metabolic connectivity in adults

TLDR
These findings indicate that patterns of metabolic connectivity of functional brain units depend on their regional locations, and propose that interregional correlation analysis of FDG-PET data offers a means of examining voxel-wise regional metabolic Connectivity of the resting human brain.

Resting-state functional connectivity reflects structural connectivity in the default mode network.

TLDR
The results demonstrate that resting-state functional connectivity reflects structural connectivity and that combining modalities can enrich the understanding of these canonical brain networks.

Investigating the electrophysiological basis of resting state networks using magnetoencephalography

TLDR
This paper describes a means to characterize resting state brain networks independently using magnetoencephalography (MEG), a neuroimaging modality that bypasses the hemodynamic response and measures the magnetic fields associated with electrophysiological brain activity, and results in RSNs with significant similarity in their spatial structure compared with R SNs derived independently using fMRI.

Network analysis of cortical visual pathways mapped with PET

TLDR
A network analysis was performed on data obtained from a PET study that examined both the changes in regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) and interregional correlations among human cortical areas during performance of an object vision (face matching) and spatial vision (dot- location matching) task.

The results suggest that voxelwise adjustment using GMV and neurovascular parameters can minimize structural and physiological variances among individuals and be used for quantitative comparisons.

TLDR
Differences in connectivity estimated from the BOLD and CBF signal present in volumes acquired with arterial spin labeling technique in a large sample of healthy individuals are investigated, suggesting that these two biomarkers correspond to distinct sources of individual differences.
