Recent findings have shown specific relationships between the cortical myeloarchitecture of the brain and resting-state functional connectivity patterns, while little is known about the white matter myelin distribution. The aim of this work is to preliminary characterize how the g-ratio (i.e., the ratio of the inner and the outer diameters of myelinated axons) and functional connectivity are interrelated. We characterized at group level connectivity patterns using structural connectivity, functional connectivity and g-ratio. We then assessed potential differences between specific functional modules. We observed different distributions when comparing structure and function in terms of g-ratio, and reported significant differences.
