This study investigated the relationship between cortical folding pattern and characteristics of structural brain network. The cortical folding pattern was measured using curvature of reconstructed cortical surface. The brain network was constructed via probabilistic fiber tractography of multishell high resolution diffusion images. Node degree, clustering coefficient, closeness centrality and average fiber length of the resultant network were quantified and analyzed. Our result indicates that structural brain network may be closely related to cortical folding pattern.
