Table 4 Regions showing high betweenness centrality in DKN of AD patients

From: Divergent topological networks in Alzheimer’s disease: a diffusion kurtosis imaging analysis

Regions Class Normalized betweenness,bi
Right superior temporal gyrus Association 6.87
Right inferior temporal gyrus Association 3.96
Right middle temporal gyrus Association 3.62
Left middle temporal gyrus Association 3.52
Right temporal pole, superior temporal gyrus Paralimbic 3.44
Left insula Association 3.19
Left heschl gyrus Association 3.04
Right fusiform gyrus Association 2.86
Left Inferior parietal, but supramarginal and angular gyri Association 2.64
Left middle frontal gyrus Association 2.55
  1. The hub regions (bi>1.5) in the GM network of the AD group for the MK metric were listed in a descending order of their normalized betweenness, bi. The regions were classified as primary, association and paralimibic as described by Mesulam (1998)
