Funds Given to UCs to Explore Schizophrenia

From staff and wire reports

The federal government has awarded nearly $11 million to help UC Irvine and UC San Diego coordinate a nationwide effort to link computerized brain images of schizophrenics.

The three-year project of the General Clinical Research Center will be led by Dr. Steven G. Potkin, a UCI psychiatry professor.

Ten centers around the country will use MRIs and other technology to compare schizophrenics and healthy patients.
