Longitudinal Analysis of rsMRI Networks Using FSLNETS


I’ve used FSL’s dual regression to extract ICA components from subjects across 4 waves (8 years total). My question is: if I wanted to use FSLNETS, what would be the best way to measure change in network indices across these 4 waves? Do I merely perform a group-level analysis for average network matrices/ network hierarchy at EACH timepoint, and then evaluate using statistical models, or, do I include all available (i.e., at every timepoint), and then extract relevant timepoint info from there. I’m not entirely sure how this latter option would work, but that is my inclination. Any help would be very much appreciated!
