OBJECTIVES This study aimed to compare the functional and gray matter asymmetries in patients with schizophrenia (SZ), patients with bipolar disorders (BD), and healthy controls (HCs) to test whether decreased leftward functional hemispheric lateralization and gray matter volume asymmetry could mark the boundary between schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. METHODS A total of 31 right-handed SZ and 20 right-handed BD underwent a session of functional MRI with a speech listening paradigm… Expand

Tables and Topics from this paper

Lateralization of intrinsic frontoparietal network connectivity and symptoms in schizophrenia
TLDR
The results suggest that language-related networks and their laterality might be one of the neural correlates of schizophrenia symptoms, and that mean connectivity of left FPN was negatively correlated with depressive symptoms in schizophrenia. Expand
Left-hemisphere lateralization for language and interhemispheric fiber tracking in patients with schizophrenia
TLDR
The present findings showed that the loss of integrity in interhemispheric callosal fibers was associated with reduced leftward cerebral dominance for language in patients with schizophrenia. Expand
Covarying structural alterations in laterality of the temporal lobe in schizophrenia: A case for source‐based laterality
TLDR
Results from this pilot SBL project are the first, to the authors' knowledge, to identify covarying laterality differences within discrete temporal brain regions, facilitating the discovery of laterality aspects unnoticed in previous work. Expand
Reduced language lateralization in first episode schizophrenia: A near infrared spectroscopy study
TLDR
This is the first NIRS study to report reduced functional lateralization in patients at the early stage of schizophrenia, found significant reduced lateralization index (LI) in the inferior frontal gyrus region in FES patients. Expand
Reduced Microstructural Lateralization in Males with Chronic Schizophrenia: A Diffusional Kurtosis Imaging Study.
TLDR
Compared with healthy controls, males with chronic schizophrenia had significantly decreased μLI across cortical and subcortical gray matter regions, which was correlated with poorer performance on the WCST. Expand
Functional Hemispheric (A)symmetries in the Aged Brain—Relevance for Working Memory
TLDR
Assessment of functional laterality during a working memory task (N-Back) in a healthy aging cohort (over 50 years old) and associated these asymmetries with performance in the test found performance in working memory in aged individuals seems to benefit from lateralized involvement of the superior parietal lobule. Expand
Hemispheric processing of idioms in schizophrenia and autism spectrum disorder
ABSTRACT Studies conducted on individuals with schizophrenia (SZ) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) show that they find it difficult to comprehend figurative language, and have a tendency toExpand
A Prospective Longitudinal Investigation of Cortical Thickness and Gyrification in Schizophrenia
TLDR
Evidence of reduced CT and LGI in unmedicated patients compared to controls is reported, suggesting involvement of different aspects of gray matter morphometry in the pathophysiology of SZ, and cortical thinning may normalize as a result of a good response to antipsychotic medication. Expand
Atypical lateralization in neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders: What is the role of stress?
TLDR
A model in which early life stress as well as chronic stress not only increases the risk for psychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders but also changes structural and functional hemispheric asymmetries leading to the aberrant lateralization patterns seen in these disorders is proposed. Expand
Pretreatment abnormalities in white matter integrity predict one-year clinical outcome in first episode schizophrenia
TLDR
Baseline alterations in white matter integrity may identify schizophrenia patients less likely to respond to treatment, which could be useful information for stratification in clinical trials and for individualized treatment planning. Expand

Functional hemispheric lateralization for language in patients with schizophrenia
TLDR
This investigation was the first to use a functional index of laterality to analyze the global functional network specifically involved in the language task and reports for the first time a significant relationship between the anatomical and functional asymmetry in healthy subjects, but not in patients with schizophrenia. Expand
Atypical hemispheric specialization for language in right-handed schizophrenia patients
TLDR
The existence of an anomaly in left hemisphere specialization for language in schizophrenic subjects is demonstrated using functional magnetic resonance imaging. Expand
Altered volume and lateralization of language-related regions in first-episode schizophrenia
TLDR
Both male and female patients displayed an increased rightward lateralization in frontal and temporal cortex, which was significantly correlated with the severity of symptoms and social functioning, and may provide the neurological substrate for the etiology and clinical manifestations of the illness. Expand
Reduced functional cerebral lateralization: a biomarker of schizophrenia?
TLDR
This study aimed to determine whether reduced functional leftward lateralization for language is specific to patients with SZ and whether this characteristic is associated with psychosis in general. Expand
Anomalous Cerebral Asymmetry in Patients with Schizophrenia Demonstrated by Voxel-Based Morphometry
TLDR
A disturbance of cerebral asymmetry in schizophrenia was suggested to be present in language-related regions, which might reflect a perturbation in the lateralization process underlying left cerebral dominance for language. Expand
Language lateralization in left-handed patients with schizophrenia
TLDR
It is suggested that decreased lateralization for language production was more closely related to handedness than to schizophrenia, and leftward asymmetry of the inferior frontal, precentral, and supramarginal gyri as well as the intra-parietal sulcus in non-right- handers compared to right-handers. Expand
Prefrontal function and activation in bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
TLDR
Brain activations during the Hayling task differentiated patients with bipolar disorder from comparison subjects and patients with schizophrenia, suggesting that bipolar disorder patients engaged emotional brain areas more than comparison subjects while performing the Haying task. Expand
Reduced Laterality as a Trait Marker ofSchizophrenia—Evidence from Structural and Functional Neuroimaging
TLDR
This study provides added support for the idea that reduced hemispheric asymmetry is a biological risk factor for schizophrenia. Expand
Localized gray matter volume reductions in the pars triangularis of the inferior frontal gyrus in individuals at clinical high-risk for psychosis and first episode for schizophrenia
TLDR
The results suggest that localized gray matter volume reductions of the bilateral PT represent a vulnerability to schizophrenia in contrast to the PO volume, which was previously found to be reduced in patients with chronic schizophrenia. Expand
Reduced language lateralization in first-episode medication-naive schizophrenia
TLDR
This is the first study to report reduced LI at the onset of schizophrenia, before medical treatment is initiated, and it is revealed that this reduction was most prominent in the inferior frontal gyrus and the superior temporal gyrus. Expand
