Quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies in patients with schizophrenia have shown reliable deficits in global tissue volume as well as some regionally specific changes, particularly in the temporal and frontal lobes. Recent technical advances have enabled automated voxel-wise analyses, which have the advantage of facilitating whole brain coverage without the restrictions of anatomically defined regions of interest and imperfect rater reliability. We used such a method to estimate… 
Brain structural changes in schizophrenia patients with persistent hallucinations
TLDR
Findings support the proposition that there are structural changes in the neural circuits underlying broader processing of affect-laden information in patients with schizophrenia prone to experiencing auditory hallucinations, which may obscure important cues for recognition of internal speech, contributing to failures of self-monitoring.
Schizophrenia with auditory hallucinations: A voxel-based morphometry study
TLDR
The presence and characteristics of structural abnormalities in relation with the intensity and phenomenology of auditory hallucinations are defined by means of magnetic resonance voxel-based morphometry (MR-VBM) method applied on a highly homogeneous group of 18 persistent hallucinatory patients meeting DSM-IV criteria for schizophrenia compared to 19 healthy matched controls.
Structural covariance in the hallucinating brain: a voxel-based morphometry study.
TLDR
Overall severity of AVHs modulated cortical intercorrelations between frontotemporal regions involved in language production and verbal monitoring, supporting the critical role of this network in the pathophysiology of hallucinations.
Neuroanatomical abnormalities in schizophrenia: A multimodal voxelwise meta-analysis and meta-regression analysis
TLDR
The meta-analyses revealed overlapping GM and WM structural findings in schizophrenia, characterized by bilateral anterior cortical, limbic and subcortical GM abnormalities, and WM changes in regions including tracts that connect these structures within and between hemispheres.
Regionally localized thinning of the cerebral cortex in schizophrenia
TLDR
Patients with chronic schizophrenia showed widespread cortical thinning that particularly affected the prefrontal and temporal cortices, which might reflect underlying neuropathological abnormalities in cortical structure.
Voxel-based gray and white matter morphometry correlates of hallucinations in schizophrenia: The superior temporal gyrus does not stand alone☆☆☆
TLDR
Results suggest that STG GM abnormalities underlie the general susceptibility to experience psychotic symptoms and that additional abnormalities in a network of medial temporal, ventrolateral, putaminal, and parietal regions related to verbal memory and speech production may specifically increase the likelihood of experiencing AVH.
Structural Imaging of the “Hallucinating” Brain in Schizophrenia
TLDR
This chapter provides insight into the main structural variations of the “hallucinating” brain in schizophrenia using a priori defined regions of interest, fully automated whole-brain voxel-based morphometry and recent gyrification analyses were examined.
Neuroanatomy of auditory verbal hallucinations in schizophrenia: A quantitative meta-analysis of voxel-based morphometry studies
TLDR
The findings of this voxel-based meta-analysis support a model postulating that aberrations within neural systems involved at different levels of language processing are critical to AVHs in schizophrenia.
Auditory hallucinations in first-episode psychosis: A voxel-based morphometry study
TLDR
Reductions in the GM concentrations in patients with FEP suggest that alterations are present in the early stages of psychosis, and these alterations are correlated with the severity of the illness.
Structural brain alterations at different stages of schizophrenia: A voxel-based morphometric study
TLDR
The findings suggest a system-specific involvement of neuronal networks in schizophrenia and suggest that in the advanced stages of schizophrenia additional cortical and subcortical brain areas become involved in the disease process.

Cortical abnormalities in schizophrenia identified by structural magnetic resonance imaging.
TLDR
A new method to segment the entire neocortex into 48 topographically defined brain regions suggested the importance of the paralimbic areas and their connections with prefrontal brain regions in schizophrenia.
Structural abnormalities in frontal, temporal, and limbic regions and interconnecting white matter tracts in schizophrenic patients with prominent negative symptoms.
TLDR
Anatomical abnormalities in these schizophrenic patients with marked negative symptoms were most evident in left hemispheric neocortical and limbic regions and related white matter tracts, compatible with models that depict schizophrenia as a supraregional disorder of multiple, distributed brain regions and the axonal connections between them.
A profile of cortical gray matter volume deficits characteristic of schizophrenia.
TLDR
The two schizophrenic groups displayed similar patterns of volume abnormalities: cortical gray matter but not white matter volume deficits that were widespread but especially notable in the prefrontal and temporal regions, which provide evidence for generality of this pattern of regional brain volume abnormalities in schizophrenia.
Superior temporal gyral volumes and laterality correlates of auditory hallucinations in schizophrenia
TLDR
The results suggest that auditory hallucinations are subserved by a trait-like dysfunction in language-related neural networks, of which the superior temporal cortex forms one component, consistent with theories proposing abnormal lateralization in the etiology of auditory hallucinations.

TLDR
Several brain structures in schizophrenia are affected to a greater extent than expected from overall reductions in brain volume, and substantial reductions were also evident in the amygdala and hippocampus.
Gray Matter-Changes and Correlates of Disease Severity in Schizophrenia: A Statistical Parametric Mapping Study
TLDR
A correlation could be established between two particular gray matter-regions and the overall disease severity, with more severely ill patients displaying a local GM-deficit, and changes were corroborated by complementary CSF-increases.
Cerebral gray and white matter reductions and clinical correlates in patients with early onset schizophrenia
TLDR
Findings emphasize a pattern of left-hemisphere gray matter abnormalities, and suggest that fronto-paralimbic connectivity may be altered in men with early onset schizophrenia.
MRI anatomy of schizophrenia
TLDR
Most data were consistent with a developmental model, but growing evidence was compatible also with progressive, neurodegenerative features, suggesting a "two-hit" model of schizophrenia.
Regional brain abnormalities in schizophrenia measured with magnetic resonance imaging.
TLDR
A specific relative decrease in brain tissue was found only in the frontal lobes, although the volume of CSF was greater in patients than in controls in all brain regions.
