spatial_dist: Calculate Euclidean distance of edges and vertices

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References

Description

edge_spatial_dist calculates the Euclidean distance of an igraph graph object's edges. The distances are in mm and based on MNI space. These distances are NOT along the cortical surface, so can only be considered approximations, particularly concerning inter-hemispheric connections. The input graph must have atlas as a graph-level attribute.

vertex_spatial_dist calculates, for each vertex of a graph, the average Euclidean distance across all of that vertex's connections.

Arguments

g

An igraph graph object

Value

edge_spatial_dist - a numeric vector with length equal to the edge count of the input graph, consisting of the Euclidean distance (in mm) of each edge

vertex_spatial_dist - a named numeric vector with length equal to the number of vertices, consisting of the average distance (in mm) for each vertex
