Brain Study Hunts ‘Fingerprints’ of Severe Mental Disorders

Brain Study Hunts ‘Fingerprints’ of Severe Mental Disorders

In a new study, researchers took a “birds-eye view” into the brain to examine how its large-scale systems interact with one another, in order to gain a better understanding of...
