In this study (http://www.nature.com/npp/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/npp201318a.html) we analyzed structural network organization in the brain in individuals with BDD compared to healthy controls, using a type of imaging technique called diffusion tensor imaging (DTI). The DTI data allowed us reconstruct white matter tracts, and we then analyzed the connectivity across the whole brain using graph theory. We found that individuals with BDD have abnormal connectivity patterns, showing higher network clustering. In addition, more severe symptoms was associated with lower global network efficiency. Individuals with BDD also showed abnormal connectivity between regions involved in visual and emotional processing. The implication is that these brain network patterns in BDD may cause impaired information processing, which, amongst other effects, could relate to abnormalities in visual perception in BDD.
