Table 4 Brain regions with changed FCD values and its potential impact

From: Functional connectivity density alterations in children with strabismus and amblyopia based on resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI)

Brain region Brain function Anticipated results
Cerebellum Regulating body balance and muscle tone; Coordinating of voluntary movement and language; emotion control; spatial cognition The damage of spatial cognition
Lenticular nucleus, putamen Executive ability; language function. Impairment of font- semantic pathway in visual pathway
Superior frontal gyrus Cognition; semantic system; episodic memory; indirectly control the sequences of visual-guided saccades and eye–hand coordination. Reduced spatial cognitive ability; impairment of eye-hand coordination
Angular gyrus Visual language center Compensatory enhancement of visual image and auditory image connection
Middle cingulum gyrus Executive ability; emotional management; visual function Abnormality of visual function
Superior parietal gyrus Center of tactile and stereognosis Stereognosis consumption increased
Middle frontal gyrus Consist of Frontal eye field eye movements accuracy consumption increased
Temporal pole mid Related to high-level social emotional function, implicated in theory of mind Negative emotion, abnormal social function
Hippocampus Long-term memory; associated with visual system; spatial information processing capability The damage of spatial information processing capability
Thalamus involved in visual sensation; dynamic visual information management The capability of dynamic visual information processing is impacted
