The corpus callosum (CC) has been the focus of several morphometric studies of patients with schizophrenia, but the results of these studies have been contradictory. In an attempt to improve the reliability of morphometric measurements of the corpus callosum, a computerised image analysis system was used to measure the shape, area, thickness and length of the CC on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in 12 pairs of monozygotic twins discordant for schizophrenia (SC). No differences in CC area… CONTINUE READING
