Washington: A new study, conducted by researchers at the Institute of Psychiatry (IoP), King`s College London, suggests that abnormalities in the white matter of the brain appear to influence the development of schizophrenia. The white matter of the brain consists of nerve fibres that connect parts of the brain and help regulate behaviour.
In interpreting the results, Dr Kyriakopoulos, the lead author, explained that the scans capture the interaction between brain development and disease mechanisms. Dr Frangou on the value of this research: “We believe this study is unique as it approaches schizophrenia research from a new perspective. It takes a life-long view on schizophrenia and thereby bridges traditional barriers between child and adult patients.”The study adds new insight to mounting evidence that abnormalities in white matter play a critical role in what turns schizophrenia on and may provide clues to new treatments.
