BACKGROUND This study combines recent advances in three-dimensional neuroimaging technology and the genetic constraints inherent in monozygotic (MZ) twins to examine surface gyral anatomy and gross brain dimensions in monozygotic twin pairs discordant for schizophrenia. Results are presented and evaluated with respect to prior observations of cortical anomalies in schizophrenia and the hypothesis that schizophrenia involves cortical maldevelopment. DESIGN Three-dimensional renderings from… CONTINUE READING
