Abstract Simultaneous FDG-PET/fMRI ([18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography functional magnetic resonance imaging) provides the capacity to image two sources of energetic dynamics in the brain – glucose metabolism and haemodynamic response. Functional fMRI connectivity has been enormously useful for characterising interactions between distributed brain networks in humans. Metabolic connectivity based on static FDG-PET has been proposed as a biomarker for neurological disease; but static FDG-PET cannot be used to estimate subject-level measures of connectivity , only across-subject covariance . Here, we applied high-temporal resolution constant infusion functional PET (fPET) to ..
