Figure 4

Comparison of the global () and local () efficiency at a sparsity range of 0.05-0.50. (a) The stroke patients showed a decline in the global efficiency relative to the healthy controls at certain sparsity (). (b) The patients exhibited a conspicuous damage on the local efficiency than the healthy controls (), while acupuncture intervention showed distinct alteration on the local efficiency of the stroke patients (). #, ## (stroke patients vs. healthy controls, in the resting state); (resting state vs. postacupuncture intervention, in the stroke patients).
