How the Statistical Validation of Functional Connectivity Patterns Can Prevent Erroneous Definition of Small-World Properties of a Brain Connectivity Network

Figure 2

Distribution of the edge density characterizing the adjacency matrices extracted during the different iterations of the connectivity estimation process on simulated data in two different cases: Case 1 (a) → percentage of edges survived to shuffling procedure for a significance level of 5% not corrected for multiple comparison; Case 2 (b) → percentage of edges survived to shuffling procedure for a significance level of 5% corrected for multiple comparisons by means of FDR.
