Brain’s "Default Mode" Awry in Schizophreni

The 'default mode,' or baseline condition when the brain is idling, is not properly coordinated in patients with schizophrenia and this aberrant activity// may be caused by poor connectivity between brain networks, a Yale School of Medicine researcher reports. Co-author Godfrey Pearlson, M.D....
