Neuroimaging studies have led to important findings with respect to brain abnormalities in schizophrenia. Infact we know more about schizophrenia in the last two decades than in the prior century, and this is largelydue to the advent of new imaging techniques that have lead to an appreciation of the role of brainabnormalities in this disorder. The objective of the Imaging Core is to provide state-of-the-art neuroimagingtechniques and post-processing tools to support the work of CIDAR projects and investigators interested inevaluating brain abnormalities in schizophrenia in conjunction with cognitive, clinical, hormonal, andelectrophysiological abnormalities, as well as genetic influences, so as to understand better putative markersof progression in schizophrenia. Moreover, understanding what factors are associated with progression inschizophrenia will likely lead to more targeted treatments as well as to prevention strategies for thisdevastating disorder, which affects close to 1 % of the general population and is thus a major health problemin the United States.
