We investigated temporal dynamics of resting-state brain activation in BOLD resting-state networks (RSNs) in patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) and healthy controls (HC). The wavelet variance analysis was applied to the RSNs time courses to assess frequency specific temporal fluctuations. Comparing to HC, MDD subjects had significantly lower fluctuation in the default-mode network (DMN) and the high-visual network in 0.031-0.125Hz and higher fluctuation in the language/auditory and the cerebellum networks in 0.125-0.25Hz and 0.0156-0.031Hz. The low DMN fluctuation in MDD was associated with high precuneus activity that triggered increase of DMN activity.
