make_brainGraph: Create a brainGraph object

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) See Also

View source: R/create_graphs.R

Description

This function will assign vertex attributes lobe and lobe.hemi for all vertices in a graph, given a specific atlas. It will also add attributes circle.layout, x, y, z for plotting.

Usage

1
2
make_brainGraph(g, atlas, rand = FALSE, modality = NULL, weighting = NULL,
  threshold = NULL, subject = NULL, group = NULL)

Arguments

g

An igraph graph object.

atlas

Character string specifying the brain atlas

rand

A character string indicating whether this function is being run for a random graph or a "graph of interest" (default: FALSE).

modality

Character vector indicating imaging modality (e.g. 'dti') (default: NULL)

weighting

Character string indicating how the edges are weighted (e.g., 'fa', 'pearson', etc.) (default: NULL)

threshold

Numeric indicating the level at which the matrices were thresholded (if at all) (default: NULL)

subject

Character vector indicating subject ID (default: NULL)

group

Character vector indicating group membership (default: NULL)

Details

The input graph g must have a graph attribute named atlas, and will assign other attributes specific to the atlas.

For the modality argument, you can choose anything you like, but the summary.brainGraph knows about dti, fmri, thickness, area, and volume.

For the weighting argument, you can choose anything you like, but summary.brainGraph knows about fa, sld (streamline density, tractography), pearson, spearman, kendall, and partial (partial correlation coefficient).
