The aim of the ENIGMA-SCT working group is to bring together Schizotypy (SCT) research groups towards large scale meta-analyses of neuroimaging data across many different studies and datasets.

Our call for participation is open and we look forward to welcoming new partners! If you have existing imaging data on healthy participants who completed a validated schizotypy / subclinical psychotic-like experiences questionnaire, if you are planning to start such a study, or if you would like more information, please contact Drs. Gemma Modinos and André Aleman. We are always open to new datasets and collaborators! The only prerequisite is that each participating group must follow the ENIGMA Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) guidelines.

To get started, you should usually run your dataset through the current ENIGMA Imaging Protocols (found here), and we can help you with that.

As a first goal, we are analysing T1-weighted brain MRI data from multiple sites in order to shed light into the neurobiology of schizotypy, with a focus on meta-analyses of subcortical and cortical volumes, as well as laterality. All further projects will be listed below as they arise.
