This work supports the importance of the white matter
underpinning a mediodorsal component of the default-mode
network (the dorsal cingulum) in conduct disorder and
callous unemotional traits. Diffusion MRI tractography
shows that decreased radial diffusivity in this tract
portion is reduced in adolescents with conduct disorder,
and that radial diffusivity is negatively correlated
with callous-unemotional traits in the whole sample.
