Much of the past year's research in the area of neuropsychology and neurophysiology of schizophrenia indicates that the pathogenesis of schizophrenia is best regarded as involving connective deficits within a distributed neural network. Both neuropsychological and neurophysiological methods are best able to highlight impairments of the prefrontal and medial-temporal areas. There have been some suggestions, however, that parietal areas may also be part of the nexus. The trend toward investigating specific schizophrenic symptomatology should generate more precise and definitive findings in the area.
