Previous studies reported that the patients with asymptomatic internal carotid stenosis (aICS) had a higher risk of stroke and neurocognitive impairment. However, whether the side of aICS could cause different neurocognitive outcomes was less explored. In this study, significant difference of functional connectivity (FC) was found between the left and right aICS groups. The association between FC and neuropsychological measures (dizziness, immediate and delayed recall verbal memory) revealed by the correlation analysis also presented different profiles between two aICS groups.
