It follows that [[omega].sub.3](h-Fix(f/p)) = [[omega].sub.3](Sp(1)) = (Z/24Z) [direct sum] Z and, because the inclusion S(H[e.sub.0]) [right arrow] S([H.sup.n+1]) is null homotopic, that h-L(f/p) lies in the Z/24Z summand.
For [phi], [psi] [member of] [A.sub.U] (X), we say that [phi] and [psi] are homotopic if there exists a compact acyclic homotopy [chi]: X x [0,1] [??] X linking [phi] and [psi] such that:
Homotopic functional connectivity is an important parameter that reflects cerebral intrinsic functional architecture.
In address this issue, we compared the interhemispheric functional connectivity among schizophrenia patients with complete remission, patients with incomplete remission, and healthy controls using a newly developed method of voxel-mirrored homotopic connectivity (VMHC).[sup][12] Previous studies have shown that the corpus callosum, which connects the two hemispheres, is damaged in patients with schizophrenia, and this damage is relatively stable with little change across different disease states.[sup][13],[14],[15] Accordingly, we hypothesized that VMHC would be reduced in schizophrenia patients and that the degree of this reduction may not be associated with the disease state of the schizophrenia, i.e., the reduction in VMHC may serve as one trait marker of schizophrenia.
