Quantification of Structural Brain Connectivity via a Conductance Model
TLDR
This work proposes a new structural connectivity measure from diffusion MRI that allows to incorporate direct brain connections, as well as indirect ones that would not be otherwise accounted for by standard techniques and that may be key for the better understanding of function from structure.
Conductance-Based Structural Brain Connectivity in Aging and Dementia
TLDR
Results indicate that the conductance measure has prediction potential, especially for age, that age and cognitive scores largely overlap, and that this measure could be used to study effects such as anti-correlation in structural connections.

Detecting Structural Brain Connectivity Differences in Dementia Through a Conductance Model
TLDR
This work analyzes data from the ADNI-2 and OASIS-3 datasets to derive relevant information for the study of the changes that the brain undergoes in AD.
Single-participant structural connectivity matrices lead to greater accuracy in classification of participants than function in autism in MRI
TLDR
A technique of deriving symmetric connectivity matrices from regional histograms of grey-matter volume estimated from T1-weighted MRIs is introduced, providing a simple means of feature extraction for inputting large numbers of structural MRIs into machine learning models.
Compensatory Brain Connection Discovery in Alzheimer's Disease
TLDR
This work uses brain connectivity to find pairs of structural connections that are negatively correlated with each other across Alzheimer's disease (AD) and healthy populations, and then validate the results on other databases.
A New Graph Based Brain Connectivity Measure
TLDR
A new measure of brain connectivity based on graphs derived from the set of transition matrices obtained by multichannel hidden Markov modeling and graph connectivity theory is presented.
Single-participant structural similarity matrices lead to greater accuracy in classification of participants than function in autism in MRI
TLDR
A technique of deriving symmetric similarity matrices from regional histograms of grey matter volumes estimated from T1-weighted MRIs provides a simple means of feature extraction for inputting large numbers of structural MRIs into machine learning models and revealed a unique emphasis of the deep learning model on the structure of the bilateral Heschl’s gyrus when characterizing autism.
Diffusion-Informed Spatial Smoothing of fMRI Data in White Matter Using Spectral Graph Filters
TLDR
This work presents an anisotropic spatial filtering scheme for smoothing fMRI data in WM that accounts for known spatial constraints on the BOLD signal in WM, and designs subject-specific spatial filters that adapt to a subject’s unique WM structure at each position in the WM that they are applied at.

Structural connectivity in schizophrenia and its impact on the dynamics of spontaneous functional networks.
TLDR
The results suggest that the functional alterations observed in schizophrenia are not directly linked to alterations in the structural topology, and subtly randomized and less small-world functional networks appear when the brain operates with lower global coupling, which shifts the dynamics from the optimal healthy regime.
Inference of functional connectivity from direct and indirect structural brain connections
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the performance of prediction is enhanced through the incorporation of indirect connections, and the mean explained variance was improved and the improvement in performance was statistically significant.
Predicting human resting-state functional connectivity from structural connectivity
TLDR
Although resting state functional connectivity is variable and is frequently present between regions without direct structural linkage, its strength, persistence, and spatial statistics are nevertheless constrained by the large-scale anatomical structure of the human cerebral cortex.
Linking Functional Connectivity and Structural Connectivity Quantitatively: A Comparison of Methods
Structural connectivity in the brain is the basis of functional connectivity. Quantitatively linking the two, however, remains a challenge. For a pair of regions of interest (ROIs), anatomical
Greater than the sum of its parts: a review of studies combining structural connectivity and resting-state functional connectivity
TLDR
This review aims to examine how the understanding of the relationship between structure and function in the ‘resting’ brain has advanced over the last several years and discusses eight articles that directly compare resting-state functional connectivity with structural connectivity and three clinical case studies of patients with limited white matter connections between the cerebral hemispheres.
Relationship between structural and functional connectivity change across the adult lifespan: A longitudinal investigation
TLDR
The main conclusions are that anatomical alignment of SC and FC seems restricted to specific networks and tracts, and that changes in FC and FC are not necessarily strongly correlated.
Integrative Structural Brain Network Analysis in Diffusion Tensor Imaging
TLDR
This study investigated the effects of incorporating the number of tracts, the tract length, and FA values into the connectivity model and compared the three connectivity models using various node-degree-based graph theory features.
