Table 2 Overview of calculated graph outcomes and definitions

From: Exploring intensity-dependent modulations in EEG resting-state network efficiency induced by exercise

Outcome Interpretation Interpretation Reference
Clustering coefficient (CC) Network segregation Higher values indicate stronger tendency of a node to build clusters within its direct neighborhood Rubinov and Sporns (2010)
Characteristic path length (PL) Network integration Higher values indicate stronger capacity of the network to become interconnected and exchange information Rubinov and Sporns (2010)
Small world index (SWI) Network efficiency Higher values indicate more efficient network by communicating via many short and few long connections Vecchio et al. (2017)
