  1. Data represent mean ± standard deviation. p-value < 0.05 was considered to be statistically significant
  2. Abbreviations: CSVD-D CSVD without depression symptoms, CSVD+D CSVD with depression symptoms, Con Control group, FA Mean fractional anisotropy of the skeleton, MD Mean of mean diffusivity of the skeleton, EGlobal Global efficiency, ELocal Local efficiency
  3. arepresents significant difference between Con and CSVD−D
  4. brepresents significant difference between Con and CSVD+D
  5. c represents significant difference between CSVD−D and CSVD+D
