Evidences had showed acute impact on the brain activity and functional connectivity in healthy trauma survivors, however, little is known about the long-term impact of trauma on the brain network function of healthy survivors. The aim of current study was to use graph theory analysis to evaluate the alteration of neural network function in survivors 2-year after trauma comparing with healthy controls without traumatic experience. Our results provide evidence that the major trauma has long-term impact on the brain network function in physically healthy survivors, highlighting the need for long-term evaluation and intervention for trauma survivors.
