Abstract

The number of neuroimaging studies on movement disorders, sensorimotor, and psychomotor functioning in schizophrenia spectrum disorders (SSD) has steadily increased over the last two decades. Accelerated by the addition of the “sensorimotor domain” to the Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) framework in January 2019, neuroscience research on the role of sensorimotor dysfunction in SSD has gained greater scientific and clinical relevance. To draw attention to recent rapid progress in the field, we performed a triennial systematic review (PubMed search from January 1st, 2018 through December 31st, 2020), in which we highlight recent neuroimaging findings and discuss methodological pitfalls as well as challenges for future research. The identified magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies suggest that sensorimotor abnormalities in SSD are related to cerebello-thalamo-cortico-cerebellar network dysfunction. Longitudinal and interventional studies highlight the translational potential of the sensorimotor domain as putative biomarkers for treatment response and as targets for non-invasive neurostimulation techniques in SSD.
