[13] Furthermore, the research team found that there were regional connectivity abnormalities in the bilateral superior medial prefrontal lobe, left superior temporal gyrus(STG), left paracentral lobule, right precentral lobule, and right inferior parietal lobe of the AOS patients by utilizing the regional homogeneity (ReHo) analysis, proposing to use the combination of ReHo values in the medial prefrontal lobe, left superior temporal gyrus, and right inferior parietal lobe as biomarkers (sensitivity of 88.24%, specificity of 91.89% and accuracy of 90.14%) for AOS patients.
Lateralized cortical changes were observed in the right rectal gyrus and precuneus and in the left supramarginal gyrus, paracentral lobule, parahippocampal gyrus, thalamus, caudate, and posterior cingulate cortex (PCC).
