Systems Neuroscience of Psychosis
is a research project to investigate structural and functional correlates of sensori-motor brain sytems involved in psychotic behavior and experience.
With current neurobiological empirical knowledge we found evidence for a new description of the schizophrenia symptoms, which is based on the pathophysiology of the brain.

We found that psychotic symptoms can not only be described as categories. They can also be separated into three different symptom dimensions which are related to well-defined brain systems. These dimensions are the language (semantic), affectivity (limbic), and the motor-behavior (executive).
