Supplementary Material

The Supplementary Material provided the results about the influence of number of neighboring voxels on the ReHo measurements. ReHo values were calculated and compared using 7, 19, and 27 voxels neighboring criteria, respectively. First, we found a lower noise and higher contrast in ReHo map with higher voxel size (Supplementary Figure S1). Second, we found that similar F distributions of intergroup differences among the three datasets, and the dataset using 19 and 27 was more statistically significant than that using 7 voxels (Supplementary Figure S2).
