Interest in the study of brain connectivity is growing, particularly in understanding the dynamics of the structural/functional connectivity relation. Structural and functional connectivity are most often analysed independently of each other. Track-weighted functional connectivity (TW-FC) was recently proposed as a means to combine structural/functional connectivity information into a single image. We extend here TW-FC in two important ways: first, all the functional data are used without having to define a prior functional network (cf. TW-FC generates a map for a pre-specified network); second, we incorporate time-resolved connectivity information, thus allowing dynamic characterisation of ..View full abstract
