REDUCED STRUCTURAL BRAIN NETWORK MODULARITY IN HEALTHY AGING: RESULTS FROM THE FRAMINGHAM HEART STUDY

      The brain network can be partitioned into a set of modules, which are defined as communities with strong internal and sparse external connectivity. Modularity fosters efficient and specialized information processing. Age-related changes in modularity have been described by functional imaging studies, but how aging affects structural modularity has not yet been assessed in a large cohort over a wide age range. Therefore, we explored the effects of age on the modular brain structure in the Framingham Heart Study.
