The Neuroanatomy of Schizophrenia: Editors' Introduction

Show Summary Details


In the past 20 years there has been a marked increase in the number of studies examining the neuroanatomy of schizophrenia. This increase has been paralleled by even greater advances in our understanding of the structure and function of neurons and the brain. These advances in our knowledge of schizophrenia and the brain, in combination with the development of more sophisticated structural and functional imaging and postmortem analytic techniques, promise a more decisive study of the neuropathology of schizophrenia in the future. This issue of Schizophrenia Bulletin provides a review of the status of research on the neuroanatomy of schizophrenia, the nature of the evidence implicating specific brain regions, and which brain regions are best candidates for hypothesis-testing studies.
