Alterations in the dopaminergic reward system, predominantly the
striatum, constitute core characteristics of schizophrenia.
Functional connectivity of the dorsal striatum during reward-related
trial-and-error learning was investigated in 17 people with schizophrenia
and 18 healthy volunteers and related to striatal grey matter volume and
We used voxel-based morphometry and psychophysiological interaction to
examine striatal volume and connectivity.
A reduced functional connectivity between left striatum and
temporo-occipital areas, precuneus and insula could be detected in the
schizophrenia group. The positive correlation between grey matter volume
and functional connectivity of the left striatum yielded significant
results in a very similar network. Connectivity of the left striatum was
negatively correlated with negative symptoms.
Present results suggest a disruption in striatal functional connectivity
that is closely linked to grey matter morphometry of the striatum.
Decreased connectivity between the striatum and psychopathologically
relevant networks may explain the emergence of negative symptoms.
