Brain Hemispheres Out of Sync in Schizophrenia | Psych Central News

 People with schizophrenia have significantly decreased interhemispheric coordination compared to those without the disorder, according to a new study. 
Researchers discovered that interhemispheric connectivity was especially reduced in the occipital lobe, the thalamus and the cerebellum areas of patients with schizophrenia.
Schizophrenia is a mental disorder that significantly affects cognition and often causes chronic problems with behavior and emotion. Along with a breakdown of thought processes, the disorder is also characterized by poor emotional responsiveness, paranoia, auditory hallucinations and delusions.
