Science Direct reports on a new study that used MRI scans to examine the brains of healthy individuals who exhibit many of the same symptoms of people with schizophrenia, without actually having the disorder. The study mapped the wiring of the brains of people who were vulnerable to psychosis and compared them to people who were not vulnerable. Difficulties were found in the ways that one region of the brain transited information to the other This finding could potentially lead to widespread problems in information processing in a way that is similar to schizophrenia. Researchers hope information will better help us understand how the brains of people with schizophrenia give rise to symptoms, as well as provide a crucial new tool for predicting future illness.
