This study quantified the impact of physiological noise correction in characterizing the resting-state fMRI in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) patients with age- and gender-matched 17 healthy subjects and 15 AD patients. Using a seed-based correlation method with seeds at posterior cingular cortex and medial prefrontal cortex, we found that the difference in the functional connectivity between AD patients and healthy controls was significantly reduced when physiological noise was suppressed.
