If you have been diagnosed with schizophrenia or another neurological or neuropsychiatric disorder, you may be eligible to participate in this study. Its purpose is to compare differences in brain structure, chemistry, and functioning in individuals with brain and mental disorders compared to healthy volunteers. This study will use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans to identify abnormalities in neurophysiology, neurochemistry and neuroanatomy that characterize schizophrenia and other disorders. More specifically, we hope to clarify the neuronal changes that occur in localized regions of the brain which may result in widespread, devastating consequences.
Healthy volunteers who have no history of psychiatric or major medical illness will also be enrolled in this study.
