This seminar will describe both recently completed and ongoing functional neuroimaging studies examining neural correlates of symptom dimensions in schizophrenia and adolescents at risk for psychosis. Together these results highlight the relationship of ventral striatum hypofunction to amotivation, amygdala hyperfunction to positive psychotic symptoms, and executive circuit hypofunction to cognitive deficits. Work on additional functional and structural neurodevelopmental phenotypes in a large sample of adolescents (Philadelphia Neurodevelopmental Cohort) will also be described.
