Brain networks are organized in
a heterogeneous range of white-matter tract sizes suggesting that the brain is
organized in broad range of white matter connection strengths. Studies of brain
structure with a binary connection model have shown a small-world network topological
organization of the brain. We developed a generalized framework to estimate the
topological properties of brain networks using weighted connections, which offers
a more realistic model of the brain compared to the binary connection model. In addition, this model reduces the need for thresholding
to obtain topological properties in dense and weighted connectomes.
