This is the first study that used resting-state fMRI (rs-fMRI) to assess the alterations of spontaneous neuronal activity in patients with mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes (MELAS) at attack and remission stages, which may provide a new insight into the mechanisms of cerebral cortex damage in MELAS.
