  journal={Frontiers in Neuroscience},
Studies featuring multimodal neuroimaging data fusion for understanding brain function and structure, or disease characterization, leverage the partial information available in each of the modalities to reveal data variations not exhibited through the independent analyses. Similar to other complex syndromes, the characteristic brain abnormalities in schizophrenia may be better understood with the help of the additional information conveyed by leveraging an advanced modeling method involving…

Weak Mutual Information Between Functional Domains in Schizophrenia
Dynamic functional domain connectivity (dFDC) is a novel information theoretic framework which measures information flow between subsets of the whole brain dFNC and corroborates the notion that SZs demonstrate reduced connectivity dynamism in fMRI.
New Graph-Theoretical-Multimodal Approach Using Temporal and Structural Correlations Reveals Disruption in the Thalamo-Cortical Network in Patients with Schizophrenia
A new flexible graph-theoretical-multimodal model called FD was applied to construct brain networks combining functional, structural and topological information of MRI measurements to patients with schizophrenia and matched healthy individuals, finding disrupted connectivity in the thalamo-cortical network in schizophrenic patients.
Decreased Cross-Domain Mutual Information in Schizophrenia From Dynamic Connectivity States
The DFDC framework is employed to analyze a dataset containing resting-state fMRI scans from 163 healthy controls and 151 schizophrenia patients (SZs) to present evidence of higher uncertainty and randomness in SZ brain function.
Frameworks to Investigate Robustness and Disease Characterization/Prediction Utility of Time-Varying Functional Connectivity State Profiles of the Human Brain at Rest
Generically regarding these neuroimaging modalities as filtered, complimentary insights of brain’s anatomical and functional organization, multimodal data fusion efforts could enable more comprehensive mapping of brain structure and function.
Altered Domain Functional Network Connectivity Strength and Randomness in Schizophrenia
Compared to healthy volunteers, functional connectivity between cognitive and default mode domains showed less randomness, while connectivity between default mode-sensorial areas showed more randomness in schizophrenia patients, suggesting deleterious rewiring trade-offs among important brain networks.
Characterizing Rapid Fluctuations of Resting State Functional Connectivity in Demyelinating, Neurodegenerative, and Psychiatric Conditions: From Static to Time-Varying Analysis
In patients with neurodegenerative and psychiatric conditions, TVC abnormalities of the DMN, attention and executive networks were associated to more severe clinical manifestations, and future technical advances might help to clarify TVC association with disease prognosis and response to treatment.
A Multimodal Fusion Analysis of Pretreatment Anatomical and Functional Cortical Abnormalities in Responsive and Non-responsive Schizophrenia
Background: Antipsychotic medications provide limited long-term benefit to ~30% of schizophrenia patients. Multimodal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data have been used to investigate brain
Towards a brain‐based predictome of mental illness
A comprehensive review of recent neuroimaging‐based predictomic approaches, current trends, and common shortcomings is presented and the vision for future directions is shared.
Alzheimer’s Disease Projection From Normal to Mild Dementia Reflected in Functional Network Connectivity: A Longitudinal Study
The results suggested that the sensory network is affected more than other brain network, and default mode network is one of the last brain networks get affected by AD.
Disordered directional brain network interactions during learning dynamics in schizophrenia revealed by multivariate autoregressive models
Directional network interactions underpin normative brain function in key domains including associative learning and should be investigated using computational psychiatric approaches that complement the MVAR method used in this work.


Dynamic functional connectivity analysis reveals transient states of dysconnectivity in schizophrenia
Higher Dimensional Meta-State Analysis Reveals Reduced Resting fMRI Connectivity Dynamism in Schizophrenia Patients
This is the first demonstration that high-level dynamic properties of whole-brain connectivity, generic enough to be commensurable under many decompositions of time-varying connectivity data, exhibit robust and systematic differences between schizophrenia patients and healthy controls.
Correspondence between structure and function in the human brain at rest
It is proposed that by exploring where GM corresponds to function would aid in the understanding of both structural and functional connectivity and in turn the human connectome, and concludes that age has a significant effect on structural components.
Multimodal Classification of Schizophrenia Patients with MEG and fMRI Data Using Static and Dynamic Connectivity Measures
Results of this study show that the integration of fMRI and MEG provides important information that captures fundamental characteristics of functional network connectivity in schizophrenia and is helpful for prediction of schizophrenia patient group membership.
Dynamic connectivity states estimated from resting fMRI Identify differences among Schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and healthy control subjects
The results provide new information about these illnesses and strongly suggest that state-based analyses are critical to avoid averaging together important factors that can help distinguish these clinical groups.
