Small-World Properties in Mild Cognitive Impairment and Early Alzheimer’s Disease: A Cortical Thickness MRI Study

Figure 3

Correlation matrix and quantitative comparison of the 3 groups. Top row (a)–(c): cortical thickness-based interregional binarized correlation matrix represents human brain structural network constructed using cortical thickness of 148 ROIs within each group. The correlation matrix showed reduced connectivity in AD patients (c) compared to controls (a) and MCI patients (b); more blocked hubs in patients with MCI compared to control and AD patients (c).
