The purpose of this study is to perform a tentative study on schizophrenia patients with severely violence behavior to explore the microstructure abnormalities in the brain. Voxelwise statistical analysis of the FA data was carried out using Tract Based Spatial Statistics. The correlation between extracted FA value in specific regions and WCST, PANSS scores were evaluated for clinical explanations.
