Abstract: Objective To conduct a knowledge graph visualization analysis through CiteSpace, to analyze the international literature related to adverse childhood experiences(ACEs) in the field of brain function by metrics, keyword co-occurrence and cluster analysis, and to determine relevant research hotspots and trends, with a view to providing guidance for futher related research. Methods The Web of Science core dataset and PubMed database from 2012 to 2022 were searched for literature related to ACEs in the field of functional brain science in the database. CiteSpace was used to visualize and analyze the number of publications, countries, authors, institutions, and co-cited literature, and to conduct co-occurrence analysis, cluster analysis and emergent word analysis on keywords in the literature. Results Only 678 articles were published overall in the last 10 years, with the highest number of articles and centrality in the U.S. Poletti S was the top author and formed some collaborative relationships with relevant researchers. The institution with the highest number of publications was the University of Pittsburgh. Keywords with the highest frequency were post-traumatic stress disorder and abusive brain injury. Conclusion ACEs has not been sufficiently studied in the field of brain function, and the main focus has been on exploring the association of ACEs, with key brain regions such as the amygdala, hippocampus and prefrontal cortex through functional MRI and the altered physiological structure of the brain in offspring as a result of parents′ ACEs.

摘要: 目的 通过CiteSpace进行知识图谱可视化分析,对国际上童年不良经历在脑功能领域相关文献进行计量学分析、关键词共现和聚类分析,对相关研究热点和趋势进行分析和预测,以期为未来相关研究提供一定指导。方法 检索2012—2022年Web of Science核心数据集和PubMed数据库,以数据库中童年不良经历在脑功能科学领域的相关文献为研究对象,利用CiteSpace对文献发表数量、国家、作者、机构、共被引文献进行可视化分析,对文献关键词进行共现分析、聚类分析和突现词分析。结果 近10年来总体发文量仅有678篇,美国为发文量和中心度最高的国家。Poletti S为发文量最高的作者,其与相关研究者形成了一定的合作关系。发文量最高的机构为匹兹堡大学。关键词以创伤后应激障碍、虐待性脑损伤等频率最高。结论 童年不良经历在脑功能领域研究还不充分,主要热点集中于通过功能性核磁共振探索童年虐待与杏仁核、海马体及前额叶皮质等关键脑区和父母童年不良经历造成后代大脑生理结构改变等相关方面。
