Andreas Ioannides & Jasmin Vassileva chaired the session “Schizophrenia, Empathy and Addiction” and ensured the smooth transmission of the talks. The first speaker, Burak Erdeniz presented an interesting talk including new fMRI data on functional brain connectivity in schizophrenia.  Importantly, the study presented connectivity deficits between specific ROIs in schizophrenic patients that are related to social functioning. The talk was presented via Skype as the speaker could not attend the conference in person. No questions were asked from the audience.
