Schizophrenia has been associated with separate irregularities in several neural oscillatory frequency bands, including theta, alpha, and gamma. Our multivariate classification suggests that instead of irregularities in many frequency bands, schizophrenia-related EEG differences may better be explained by an overall shift in neural noise, reflected by a change in the 1/f slope of the power spectrum.
