Altered Brain Activity and Functional Connectivity in Unilateral Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss

Figure 5

ROI-wise FC patterns with significant alterations between the L-SSNHL and HC-1 subgroups. Compared with the HC-1 subgroup, the L-SSNHL subgroup showed significantly increased FCs between the bilateral MTG and ROIs mainly located in the bilateral occipital lobes and the right limbic lobe, and between the lSMG.p and the left parietal cortex (a). Increased FCs were observed between the lAG and ROIs, mainly located in the bilateral frontal lobes, occipital lobes, and limbic lobes (b). The yellow balls indicate the seed ROI while the cyan balls indicate the ROIs with significantly different FC values. MTG: middle temporal gyrus; OP: occipital pole; SMG: supramarginal gyrus; AG: angular gyrus; ICLC: intracalcarine cortex; OFG: occipital fusiform gyrus; SCC: subcallosal cortex; SCLC: supracalcarine cortex; SPL: superior parietal lobule; LOC: lateral occipital cortex; FMC: frontal medial cortex; PCG: paracingulate gyrus; CG: cingulate gyrus; PCUN: precuneus; LG: lingual gyrus; TOFC: temporal occipital fusiform cortex; l: left; r: right; a: anterior division; p: posterior division; s: superior division; to: temporooccipital part.
