A novel tract tracing algorithm was applied to study connectivity of the cerebellum and thalamus in patients with schizophrenia compared to a control sample. The patients had overall lower fractional anisotropy values along the identified tracts. Discrete areas of deficits were seen in both fiber tracts (left and right) in similar locations.
