    Potassium channel genes may impact white matter microstructures that regulate axonal electric signal transmission and influence processing speed deficits seen in schizophrenia. A single nucleotide polymorphism in potassium channel subfamily Q member 1 (KCNQ1) is jointly associated with processing speed and white matter deficits in schizophrenia.
