The neural mechanisms of the brain and, particularly, the neural networks involved in pathological behavior as in the schizophrenia disorder, have become a relevant research topic. Hence, the proposal developed in this Doctoral Thesis is focused on analyzing EEG recordings to characterize the underlying neural mechanisms of the brain aimed at finding altered neural substrates in schizophrenia.
