Abstract

Connectograms are novel tools for intuitive brain connectivity visualization and could be useful in the context of personalized medicine and patient-tailored rehabilitation. In this study, we investigated the motor network structural connectivity pattern of a patient with cervical dystonia (CD) before and after treatment with Botulin Neurotoxin (BoNT) and compared it with an healthy control (HC) subject. Results showed abnormal inter-hemispheric connectivity in CD patient both before and after BoNT, suggesting the importance of associating rehabilitation to BoNT in CD treatment.
