Patients with schizophrenia exhibit abnormalities in midsagittal corpus callosum area, shape, and/or displacement. Our goal was to confirm these findings and to establish the genetic and nongenetic contributions to altered callosal morphology in schizophrenia. Relationships between ventricular enlargements potentially contributing to callosal displacements were assessed as a secondary goal. High-resolution magnetic resonance images were obtained from co-twins of monozygotic and dizygotic pairs… CONTINUE READING
