Imaging the vulnerable brain: functional and structural MRI in psychosis proneness

Symptoms of psychosis (e.g., hallucinations, unusual beliefs) do not only occur in people with a mental illness, like schizophrenia. There are healthy people in the general population who experience subclinical symptoms of psychosis, which are less severe and do not have clinical relevance. The main goal of this thesis was to determine whether some of the features associated with clinically relevant psychosis are also associated with vulnerability for its development. The present findings support the notion of continuity between subclinical and clinical forms of psychosis.
