Reliability of the amplitude of low-frequency fluctuations in resting state fMRI in chronic schizophrenia. Academic Article uri icon


  • The resting state amplitude of low frequency fluctuations (ALFF) in functional magnetic resonance imaging has been shown to be reliable in healthy subjects, and to correlate with antipsychotic treatment response in antipsychotic-naïve schizophrenia patients. We found moderate to high test-retest stability of ALFF in chronically treated schizophrenia patients assessed twice over a median interval of 2.5 months.Copyright © 2012 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.
