The connectome refers to a comprehensive network description of the brain’s internal wiring. Advances in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have enabled reliable mapping of the large-scale connectome in the living human brain. Comparing the human connectome between healthy and diseased brains has identified disease-specific anomalies in brain circuitry that may provide novel therapeutic targets and potential biomarkers to assess risk and predict patient outcomes. This project will use state-of-the-art neuroimaging techniques to investigate functional brain networks in a large sample of youth experiencing symptoms of psychosis.
