BACKGROUND Schizophrenia is commonly considered a neurodevelopmental disorder. Our aim was to determine whether the proton magnetic resonance spectroscopic (1H-MRS) changes seen in adults with schizophrenia are displayed in children at risk for developing schizophrenia. METHODS Children with symptoms of schizophrenia-spectrum disorders (n = 16; mean age = 132 months) and a comparison group (n = 12; mean age 130 months) took part in a 1H-MRS study of the left frontal lobe. Areas of peaks from… CONTINUE READING
