Abstract

Objective: Schizophrenia involves white matter abnormalities that might have a central role in the pathophysiology. Abnormal brain connectivity especially in prefrontal and temporal heteromodal cortex has been suggested as the leading structural impairment in patients with schizophrenia. In this study we examined the relationship between potential white matter changes and clinical response, as well as associations with antipsychotic treatment follow-up.
