Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is a relatively new technique used to detect changes in the anisotropic diffusion of white matter. The study of the disruption of brain connectivity may increase our understanding of cognitive deficits associated with schizophrenia. Here we analysed DTI data in 25 patients with DSM-IV schizophrenia and 24 healthy controls. Two(More)
The hemodynamic response (HDR) function is the basis for standard functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) analysis. HDR is influenced by white matter inflammation. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is frequently accompanied by diffuse white matter injury, but the effect of this on the HDR has not been investigated. The aims of the present study were to(More)
Previous studies have demonstrated that stable and adaptive attention processes are mediated by partly overlapping, but distinct, brain areas. Dorsal medial PFC and anterior insula may form a "core network" for attention control, which is believed to operate on both temporal scales. However, both the existence of such a network as well as the unique(More)
In the brain, intracellular iron is essential for cellular metabolism. However, an overload of free iron is toxic, inducing oxidative stress and cell death. Although an increase of striatal iron has been related to atrophy and impaired cognitive performance, the link between elevated iron and altered brain activity in aging remains unexplored. In a sample(More)
