Inflammation-associated functional connectivity patterns. Brain regions (medial prefrontal cortex [mPFC], inferior parietal lobule [IPL]) showing positive connections to the default mode network (DMN; a), dorsal attention network (DAN; b, c), medial visual network (MVN; d), and salience network (SLN; e, f) at higher levels of peripheral inflammation. Scatterplots showing the strength connectivity and levels of erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) are displayed below brain images. All associations were detected using seed networks identified by independent component analysis in a whole-brain search with ESR as the primary predictor of interest controlling for age and sex with p < 0.05 false discovery rate (FDR) cluster corrected for multiple comparisons
