Amygdala Hyperactivity at Rest in Paranoid Individuals With Schizophrenia

Additionally, the reported differences between paranoid and nonparanoid patient volunteers emphasize the importance of considering symptom-based subgroups and baseline levels of activity in future investigations of neural activation in schizophrenia.
