New Findings of Altered Thalamocortical Connectivity in Individuals Diagnosed with Schizophrenia and Healthy Siblings Accepted for Publication

Our manuscript entitled, ‘Altered thalamocortical structural connectivity in persons with schizophrenia and healthy siblings’ was accepted at the NeuroImage: Clinical. In this paper, we show that people diagnosed with schizophrenia have reduced thalamo-prefrontal connectivity and increased thalamo-motor connectivity. Healthy participants who have a sibling diagnosed with schizophrenia also have reduced thalamo-prefrontal connectivity, but no alteration in thalamo-motor connectivity. These findings have implications for understanding the mechanisms of schizophrenia and potential protective factors.
