Abstract Sinogastromyzon sichangensis is a hillstream loach endemic to the upper Yangtze River, China. It is unclear whether this fish lives in a very restricted area or may be dispersed over a long distance. In the present study spatial connectivity of populations of S. sichangensis was investigated based on 343 individuals collected from 12 sites of Chishui River and employing 22 microsatellite loci. The results of genetic diversity analysis showed that observed heterozygosity (HO) and polymorphism information content (PIC) ranged from 0.5653 to 0.6999 and 0.8513 to 0.8819, respectively. Population structure ana...

CONCLUSION: This study lends support to emerging evidence for the effectiveness of C+ECT in clozapine resistant schizophrenia. These results are consistent with the results of a meta-analysis and the only randomised controlled trial (RCT) of this intervention. Further RCTs are required before this treatment can be confidently recommended. PMID: 32967745 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
