Researchers Link Brain Abnormalities With Specific Schizophrenia Symptoms

According to a new study from an international team of researchers, specific symptoms of schizophrenia can be linked to distinct anatomical abnormalities in the brain which can be seen through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The findings, published in the journal NeuroImage, could have a large impact on how schizophrenia is diagnosed and treated in the…

Abnormal Brain Wiring May Contribute To Schizophrenia Symptoms

For years, it has been apparent that the symptoms of schizophrenia may be partially explained by abnormal connectivity in the brain. Now, in the first study of its kind, researchers at Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC) have used Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to show that the brains of younger individuals who show only…

Severe Schizophrenia Causes Unique Difference In Brain Networks

Individuals with severe cases of schizophrenia show significant differences in their brain networks compared to people with more mild cases of schizophrenia or individuals with bipolar disorder, according to a new study from the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). Using a novel method of mapping brain networks, researchers from the Campbell Family Health…

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy May Help Reduce Paranoia Symptoms in Schizophrenia

A recent study from researchers at the University of Oxford, the University of Southampton, and the University of Manchester has found that reducing anxiety with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) may help reduce issues with paranoia in individuals with schizophrenia. Paranoia is a prominent symptom of schizophrenia and can be one of the most debilitating or…

Cardiovascular and Endocrinologic Risks Associated With Schizophrenia

A new study published in JAMA Psychiatry says those experiencing their first schizophrenia spectrum episode were more likely to exhibit a number of cardiovascular and endocrinologic risk factors compared to those without the condition. The researchers led by Christoph U. Cornell, MD, from North Shore-LIJ Health System in Glen Oaks, saw that half of the…

New Study Links Cognition and Motivation in Schizophrenia Patients

Motivation and cognitive abilities are more closely associated in individuals with schizophrenia according to new research published in JAMA Psychiatry, which suggests that neurocognitive tests are more than “purely a measure of ability” as lead researcher Gagan Fervaha from the University of Toronto and colleagues explained. Fervaha and colleagues found a link in 431 patients…

Researchers Find Clues to Why Schizophrenia Causes Memory Impairment

Researchers have been searching for insight regarding how schizophrenia impairs working memory and cognition. Now one team of researchers believe they’ve found it with the discovery that an inability to ignore irrelevant stimuli may underlie the impaired working memory and cognition often experienced by individuals diagnosed with the condition. “Our assumption was that understanding the…

Study Says Biomarker Can Predict Schizophrenia Patients’ Stress Tolerance

  New research indicates the salivary levels of the endogenous neuromodulator kynurenic acid (KYNA) can identify patients with schizophrenia who are likely to be intolerant of stress. “Importantly, we have uncovered a potential biomarker separating a subgroup of patients with schizophrenia displaying a particular maladaptive behaviour”, say lead study author Joshua Chiappelli, from the Maryland…
