The temporal lobe has long been a focus of attention with regard to the underlying pathology of several major psychiatric illnesses. Previous postmortem and imaging studies describing regional volume reductions or perfusion defects in temporal subregions have shown inconsistent findings, which are in part due to differences in the definition of the subregions and the methodology of measurement. The development of precise reproducible parcellation systems on magnetic resonance images may help… CONTINUE READING
