    Potassium channel genes may impact white matter microstructures that regulate axonal electric signal transmission and influence processing speed deficits seen in schizophrenia. A SNP in potassium channel KCNQ1 is jointly associated with processing speed and white matter deficits in schizophrenia. Figure 1. Rs8234 and joint phenotype analysis .
