They found that the 'small world' property of the brain network of patients with schizophrenia was abnormal: (a) compared to normal brains the characteristic path length and the clustering coefficient increased; (b) the nodes in some brain areas had decreased centrality and thinner cortices (especially the left parahippocampal gyrus, inferior temporal gyrus, angular gyrus, and right superior frontal gyrus, which are part of the default network); and (c) the nodes in other brain areas had increased centrality, including nodes in the primary cortex (bilateral precuneous, left precentral gyrus, postcentral gyrus, and right Heschl gyrus) and the paralymbic system (bilateral orbital frontal gyrus, temporal pole, right cingulate tract, and inferior parietal gyrus).
