Network-based measures can outperform regional and whole-brain grey matter (GM) measures in explaining clinical disability in several neurodegenerative disorders. However, network measures are mostly estimated at the group level and require a re-estimation of model parameters when applied to new participants. Here, we introduce a new longitudinal network analysis paradigm to extract longitudinal ICA-like components at an individual level from a discovery cohort, applied machine learning to obtain individual-level network-based measure for a validation cohort, and used them to explain clinical disability in multiple sclerosis.
