We studied the default mode network in a group of Moyamoya patients using ICA method and observed erroneous assessments of functional connectivity in regions with prolonged arterial arrival time. We showed that these arterial delays could lead to erroneous elimination of affected brain regions from a functional connectivity network. We proposed a method called “temporal realignment” to mitigate this problem.
