Local white matter geometry from diffusion tensor gradients
(Elsevier BV, 2010)
We introduce a mathematical framework for computing geometrical properties of white matter fibres directly from diffusion tensor fields. The key idea is to isolate the portion of the gradient of the tensor field corresponding ...
Stochastic tractography study of Inferior Frontal Gyrus anatomical connectivity in schizophrenia
(Elsevier BV, 2011)
Background—Abnormalities within language-related anatomical structures have been associated with clinical symptoms and with language and memory deficits in schizophrenia. Recent studies suggest disruptions in functional ...
CNTNAP2 polymorphisms and structural brain connectivity: A diffusion-tensor imaging study
(Elsevier BV, 2013)
CNTNAP2 is a gene on chromosome 7 that has shown associations with autism andschizophrenia, and there is evidence that it plays an important role for neuronal synchronization and brain connectivity. In this study, we ...
Auditory verbal hallucinations and the interhemispheric auditory pathway in chronic schizophrenia
(Informa UK Limited, 2014)
Objectives—The interhemispheric auditory pathway has been shown to play a crucial role in the processing of acoustic stimuli, and alterations of structural and functional connectivity between bilateral auditory areas are ...
Reduced fractional anisotropy and axial diffusivity in white matter in 22q11.2 deletion syndrome: A pilot study
(Elsevier BV, 2012)
Individuals with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11.2DS) evince a 30% incidence of schizophrenia. We compared the white matter (WM) of 22q11.2DS patients without schizophrenia to a group matched healthy controls using ...
