DAN is thought to mediate goal-directed top-down processing [25] and primarily involves the middle and superior occipital gyrus, parietal gyrus, inferior, superior parietal gyrus, middle frontal gyrus, and superior frontal gyrus.
Finally, relative to the SCZ group, DD showed increased activations in the left superior parietal gyrus (MNI coordinates: x = -32; y = -52; z = 70; 28 voxels; z = 3.31; P = 0.001).
More importantly, our between-group comparisons revealed increased activations in the left superior parietal gyrus in both HC and DD, relative to SCZ patients, while the comparison between DD patients and HC revealed no between-group differences regarding brain region (despite the fact that DD patients had lower parental SES status).
