Abstract: Psychoses are the most severe and devastating psychiatric disorders that cut through the classical nosological categories and include schizophrenia spectrum disorders as well as affective disorders. Genetic and environmental factors have been associated with their etiology, but their pathophysiology is still unknown. Neuroimaging studies have investigated structural and functional changes associated with the risk for these disorders along with their treatment response.

In this presentation, functional connectivity-related phenotypes associated with the risk for the disorders, their modulation by genetic variation and treatment will be discussed.
