The recent brain connectomic framework has introduced a shift in the study of brain tumors. Previously considered as a focal brain disease, brain tumors are nowadays also studied in the context of structural and functional neural networking disruptions and their cognitive consequences. In this longitudinal behavior and resting state functional MRI study, we investigate how tumor grade, behavior and functional connectivity in brain network hubs and their connections to non-hubs are affected following surgical tumor resection.
