Between-group differences in global network measures; between-group differences in A) clustering coefficient, B) characteristic path length and C) small-worldness parameter. The vertical arrows represent the densities where the difference is statistically significant at P < 0.05. It shows that while there is no significant difference in network characteristic path lengths between groups (same level of integration), the clustering coefficient is significantly higher (more segregated network) in the CON network in various densities resulting in higher small-worldness compared to the BC group across a range of densities. Squares represent control minus BC group measure, dashed lines show the 95% confidence interval and the dotted line shows the mean for the random graph distribution.
