Our manuscript entitled, ‘Structural thalamo-frontal hypoconnectivity is related to oculomotor corollary discharge dysfunction in schizophrenia,’ was accepted at the Journal of Neuroscience. In this paper, we show that people diagnosed with schizophrenia have reduced structural connectivity in a specific brain pathway found to transmit sensorimotor prediction signals in nonhuman primates. Such reduced connectivity was associated […]
