Abstract

Altered neuroplasticity is increasingly invoked as a mechanism underpinning dysconnectivity in schizophrenia. We used Dynamic Causal Modelling to compare connectivity during the magnetic auditory Mismatch Negativity (MMN), an index of error prediction, between schizophrenia patients and controls. Patients showed reduced intrinsic connectivity within the primary auditory cortex suggestive of impaired local neuronal adaptation and disrupted forward and backward extrinsic connectivity throughout the MMN network indicative of reduced higher order input in disambiguating activity in lower network nodes. Our study provides the first empirical description of the dysplastic changes underpinning dysconnectivity between primary sensory and higher order cortical areas in schizophrenia.
