The anterior cingulate gyrus (ACG) is a critical structure for social cognitive processing; the pathology of this structure might be a major source of social dysfunction in schizophrenia. Multiple structural abnormalities of the ACG have been demonstrated in schizophrenia including changes in gray matter volume, white matter microstructures and macroscopic sulcal morphology. However, the interrelationships among these different abnormalities have not been investigated. Thus, the relationship… Expand
Anterior and posterior cingulum abnormalities and their association with psychopathology in schizophrenia: A diffusion tensor imaging study
TLDR
The findings suggest that CB abnormalities in schizophrenia are not restricted to the anterior CB, but include the posterior as well, and would be one of the possible neural underpinnings of positive symptoms in schizophrenia. Expand
Anterior cingulate and paracingulate sulci morphology in patients with schizophrenia
TLDR
A smaller volume of the left anterior cingulate sulcus was observed in patients with schizophrenia when compared with healthy controls and gender differences in the structural abnormalities of the illness are suggested. Expand
Role of frontal white matter and corpus callosum on social function in schizophrenia
TLDR
The results confirmed the association between structural connectivity in the right frontal white matter and corpus callosum and social function in schizophrenia and may provide a foundation for developing an intervention for functional recovery in schizophrenia. Expand
Whole brain volume changes and its correlation with clinical symptom severity in patients with schizophrenia: A DARTEL-based VBM study
TLDR
It is suggested that GM and WM volume abnormalities in the STG are associated with the psychopathology of schizophrenia. Expand
Female specific anterior cingulate abnormality and its association with empathic disability in schizophrenia
TLDR
Volumes of the left dorsal ACC were inversely correlated with personal distress subscale scores within female patients with schizophrenia, suggesting that pathology of specific ACC subdivisions would have an impact on specific empathic disabilities in schizophrenia, with potential gender specificity. Expand
Neuroimaging studies of social cognition in schizophrenia
TLDR
A series of neuroimaging studies from the laboratory that exemplify current research into impaired social cognition are overviewed, and how it can be further tackled using recent advances in neuroim imaging technology is discussed. Expand
Theory of mind and frontal lobe pathology in schizophrenia: A voxel-based morphometry study
TLDR
Results suggest that prefrontal cortical reduction, especially in the left VLPFC, is a key pathology underlying the difficulties faced by schizophrenia patients in inferring the mental states of others. Expand
Correlation of reduced social communicational and interactional skills with regional grey matter volumes in schizophrenia patients
TLDR
A negative correlation is found between the left posterior superior temporal gyrus and the severity of the SCI in schizophrenia by using with SRS-A, which was the region affected in previous studies of autistic spectrum disorders. Expand
Anterior cingulate morphology in people at genetic high-risk of schizophrenia
Abstract Background Morphological abnormalities of the anterior cingulate (AC) occur in patients with schizophrenia and in symptomatic high-risk individuals, and may be predictive of subsequentExpand

Social cognition and frontal lobe pathology in schizophrenia: A voxel-based morphometric study
TLDR
Poor performance on emotion attribution to protagonists in social situations was found to be associated with reductions in gray matter in the medial prefrontal cortex of the patient group, suggesting that in schizophrenia, difficulties in understanding the emotional experiences of others are possible manifestations of structural abnormalities in the MPFC. Expand
Cingulate gyrus volume and metabolism in the schizophrenia spectrum
TLDR
Compared with controls, patients with schizophrenia have metabolic and volumetric reductions in a cingulate gyrus area that is related to higher executive functions. Expand
Morphology of the anterior cingulate gyrus in patients with schizophrenia: relationship to typical neuroleptic exposure.
TLDR
The morphology and clinical correlates of the anterior cingulate gyrus were evaluated in a group of 30 right-handed male subjects with schizophrenia and a comparison group matched for age, sex, and handedness, indicating that greater exposure to neuroleptics was associated with greater cortical depth of this region. Expand
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. Expand
Reduced anterior cingulate gyrus volume correlates with executive dysfunction in men with first-episode schizophrenia
TLDR
Findings suggest a link between executive deficits and dysfunction of the dorsal 'archicortical' system and implicate sex differences in their relationship in first-episode schizophrenia. Expand
Localized volume reduction in prefrontal, temporolimbic, and paralimbic regions in schizophrenia: an MRI parcellation study
TLDR
The results suggest that gray matter volume reductions in the ACG are prominent among prefrontal and temporolimbic regions in patients with schizophrenia, indicating the importance of ACG abnormalities in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. Expand
Morphology of the anterior cingulate cortex in young men at ultra-high risk of developing a psychotic illness.
TLDR
Although ACC anomalies are present in young people considered to be at ultra-high risk of psychosis, they do not identify individuals who subsequently make the transition to psychosis. Expand
Cingulate fasciculus integrity disruption in schizophrenia: a magnetic resonance diffusion tensor imaging study
TLDR
Diffusion in the cingulum bundle is evaluated in schizophrenia to provide strong evidence for CB disruptions in schizophrenia, which may be related to disease-related attention and working memory abnormalities. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that gender may play an important role in the structural asymmetry anomalies in schizophrenia. Expand
Cingulate gyrus in schizophrenic patients and normal volunteers
TLDR
The results suggest that left cingulate gyrus size may be inversely related to severity of hallucinations in schizophrenia, and a reliable method to measure the cingulates gyrus on MRI is demonstrated. Expand
