Opposite changes in phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C immunoreactivity in the left prefrontal and superior temporal cortex of patients with chronic schizophrenia
BACKGROUND Abnormalities in types of neurotransmitter signaling that are coupled with phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C (PLC) have previously been reported in brains from patients withExpand

Abnormal neurochemical asymmetry in the temporal lobe of schizophrenia
Neuroanatomical asymmetries are known to be present in the human brain, and loss of reversal of these asymmetries, particularly through changes in the left temporal lobe, have been found in theExpand
