Impaired brain connectivity is a hallmark of schizophrenia brain dysfunction. However, the effect of drug
treatment and challenges on the dysconnectivity of functional networks in schizophrenia is an understudied area. In this
review, we provide an overview of functional magnetic resonance imaging studies examining dysconnectivity in
schizophrenia and discuss the few studies which have also attempted to probe connectivity changes with antipsychotic
drug treatment. We conclude with a discussion of possible avenues for further investigation.
