Abstract

Bipolar disorder (BD) is a common psychiatric disease. Previous studies have found abnormalities in structural and functional brain connectivity in BD patients. However, few studies have focused on the functional connectivity (FC) of the cerebellum and its sub-regions in patients with BD. The present study aimed to examine the FC of cerebellum-default mode network (DMN) regions in patients with BD II.
