Disruption of gamma–delta relationship related to working memory deficits in first-episode psychosis
An inability to encode multiple items in short-term memory associated with abnormalities in the relationship between oscillations related to the difficulty of the WM task is demonstrated in FEP, arguing in favor of a dysfunction of the E/I balance in psychosis.
EEG-Based Measures in At-Risk Mental State and Early Stages of Schizophrenia: A Systematic Review
Multiple EEG-indices were altered during at-risk mental state and early stages of schizophrenia, supporting the hypothesis that cerebral network dysfunctions appear already before the onset of the disorder.
Frontoparietal anodal tDCS reduces ketamine-induced oscillopathies
Preliminary neurophysiological findings are promising for developing a therapeutic proof-of-concept against neuropsychiatric disorders.
Alpha Power and Functional Connectivity in Cognitive Decline: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
Research indicates that RS alpha power decreases with increasing impairment, and could—combined with measures from other frequency bands—become a biomarker of early cognitive decline.
Neurophysiology in psychosis: The quest for disease biomarkers
The literature on neurophysiological markers for psychosis and their relevant disease mechanisms are reviewed, mainly covering event-related potentials including P50/N100 sensory gating, mismatch negativity, and the N100 and P300 waveforms.
A multimodal magnetoencephalography 7 T fMRI and 7 T proton MR spectroscopy study in first episode psychosis
In FEP, a significant alteration in resting state low frequency MEG activity is reported, but no alterations in auditory evoked gamma band response, suggesting that the former is a more robust biomarker of early psychosis.
Basic Self-Disturbances Related to Reduced Anterior Cingulate Volume in Subjects at Ultra-High Risk for Psychosis
Basic self-disturbances in UHR subjects appear to be related to reductions in anterior cingulate volume, which is inversely correlated with the EASE score.

Early auditory gamma-band responses in patients at clinical high risk for schizophrenia.
Aberrant Current Source-Density and Lagged Phase Synchronization of Neural Oscillations as Markers for Emerging Psychosis.
Patients who will later make the transition to psychosis are characterized by impairments in localized and synchronized neural oscillations providing new insights into the pathophysiological mechanisms of schizophrenic psychoses and may be used to improve the prediction of psychosis.

These results indicate that in addition to prefrontal cortical abnormalities, altered synchronised neural oscillations are also present, suggesting possible disruptions in cortico-cortical communications.
EEG-Informed fMRI Reveals a Disturbed Gamma-Band–Specific Network in Subjects at High Risk for Psychosis
The results of this study point towards a potential applicability of aeGBR disturbances as a marker for the prediction of transition of HRP subjects to schizophrenia.
Increased Resting-State Gamma-Band Connectivity in First-Episode Schizophrenia.
The present study provides a link between resting-state gamma-band connectivity and the core symptoms of schizophrenia, and indicates increased connectivity in patients within a strongly lateralized network consisting mainly of left inferior frontal/orbitofrontal, lateral and medial temporal, and inferior parietal areas.
Spontaneous Gamma Activity in Schizophrenia.
Spontaneous gamma activity is increased during auditory steady-state stimulation in patients with SZ, reflecting a disruption in the normal balance of excitation and inhibition.

The observed results confirm the applicability of aeGBR disturbances as a stable endophenotype of schizophrenia, and suggest a cognitive, rather than sensory, deficit at their origin.
