Results: Compared with the healthy control group, the two schizophrenia groups showed significantly increased ReHo in the right caudate and inferior temporal gyrus and decreased ReHo in the bilateral postcentral gyrus and thalamus and the right inferior occipital gyrus (false discovery rate corrected, P < 0.05).
A voxel-wise ANCOVA revealed that the intergroup differences in ReHo were mainly located in the bilateral postcentral gyrus and thalamus, the left precuneus and putamen, and the right caudate, inferior temporal gyrus and inferior occipital gyrus (FDR corrected, P < 0.05) [Figure 1].
[50] Studying geriatric patients who had recovered from depression, Yuan and colleagues [51] found that compared to noncarriers, those who were carriers of the epsilon4 ([epsilon]4) allele of the apolipoprotein E (ApoE) gene had reduced grey matter volume in the frontal gyrus and the inferior occipital gyrus. A study among elderly persons who had recovered from depression by Wu and colleagues [52] found decreased FC in the posterior cingulated cortex and temporal lobe when performing episodic memory tasks (compared to the resting-state FC) that was more pronounced among [epsilon]4 allele carriers--supporting hypotheses about the role of ApoE [epsilon]4 in brain functions related to episodic memories.
