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