The post How “they” view “us”: Colton Berrett edition appeared first on RESPECTFUL INSOLENCE.
Abstract By means of a novel methodology that can statistically derive patterns of co‐alterations distribution from voxel‐based morphological data, this study analyzes the patterns of brain alterations of three important psychiatric spectra—that is, schizophrenia spectrum disorder (SCZD), autistic spectrum disorder (ASD), and obsessive‐compulsive spectrum disorder (OCSD). Our analysis provides five important results. First, in SCZD, ASD, and OCSD brain alterations do not distribute randomly but, rather, follow network‐like patterns of co‐alteration. Second, the clusters of co‐altered areas form a net of a...
