Is Schizoid personality disorder "Asperger/Autism"?

Quote Quote by fuzzyfelt View Post
In mentioning asymptomatic relatives, would this apply to a spectrum? Are there similarities?
No, it just seems to be a peculiarity of schizophrenia, schizophreniform disorders and schizoid personality disorder. Especially first order relatives will be appparantly asymptomatic, but fMRI shows some similar activity in their Default Mode Network. There was an excellent study which touched on this, out of Harvard, in 2009... I'll see if I can find it.
