BACKGROUND Anterior cingulate gyrus abnormalities have been suggested to be involved in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia; however, little is known about morphologic changes in the perigenual cingulate gyrus in schizophrenia patients. METHODS We investigated perigenual cingulate gyrus volume in 40 schizophrenia patients (20 men, 20 women) and 40 age- and gender-matched normal controls using magnetic resonance imaging. Volume of both gray and white matter of the perigenual cingulate gyrus… Expand
Lack of normal gender differences of the perigenual cingulate gyrus in schizophrenia spectrum disorders
TLDR
The results suggest that both schizotypal and schizophrenia patients may share the same disruption of the normal pattern of gender differences of the perigenual cingulate gyrus. Expand
Volume of the cingulate and outcome in schizophrenia
TLDR
Poor outcome was associated with gray matter deficits in posterior cingulate while compensatory white matter increases in dorsal posterior regions may be related to better outcome. Expand
Abnormal development of the anterior cingulate in childhood-onset schizophrenia: a preliminary quantitative MRI study
TLDR
The data suggest that significant cingulate abnormalities may result from deviations in progressive neurodevelopmental processes, beginning before birth and continuing through childhood and adolescence, in persons who develop schizophrenia. Expand
Bilateral volume reduction of the insular cortex in patients with schizophrenia: a volumetric MRI study
TLDR
There is a possible progressive loss of the gray matter volume of the bilateral insular cortices subsequent to the onset of schizophrenia, and volumes of the left and right insular cortex were significantly reduced in schizophrenia patients compared with control subjects. Expand
Localized volume reduction in prefrontal, temporolimbic, and paralimbic regions in schizophrenia: an MRI parcellation study
TLDR
The results suggest that gray matter volume reductions in the ACG are prominent among prefrontal and temporolimbic regions in patients with schizophrenia, indicating the importance of ACG abnormalities in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. Expand
Cingulate gyrus volume and metabolism in the schizophrenia spectrum
TLDR
Compared with controls, patients with schizophrenia have metabolic and volumetric reductions in a cingulate gyrus area that is related to higher executive functions. Expand
Anterior cingulum volumetry, auditory P300 in schizophrenia with negative symptoms
TLDR
The results support the assumption that structural changes of the ACC are more pronounced in subgroups of schizophrenia patients with more negative psychopathology and while right hemisphere ACC volumes significantly differ between schizophrenia subgroups, combining measures of event-related potential (ERP) and ACC volumetry does not add additional information. Expand
Cortical Thinning in Cingulate and Occipital Cortices in First Episode Schizophrenia
TLDR
Cortical thinning may correspond to cytoarchitectural and neurochemical abnormalities observed in similar anatomic locations and may underlie systems-wise disturbances that include heteromodal association cortices, where cortical thinning has been previously observed in first episode schizophrenia. Expand
Morphological brain changes associated with Schneider's first-rank symptoms in schizophrenia: an MRI study
TLDR
Schneiderian symptoms may be associated with morphological abnormalities in the limbic-paralimbic regions such as the cingulate gyrus and parahippocampal gyrus, which possibly serve the self-monitoring function and the coherent storage and reactivation of information. Expand
Volumetric analysis of sulci/gyri-defined in vivo frontal lobe regions in schizophrenia: Precentral gyrus, cingulate gyrus, and prefrontal region
TLDR
It is confirmed that patients with schizophrenia do have cortical volume reductions in the whole frontal lobe and its subregions, and volume reduction in the PCG suggests that the primary motor cortex might contribute to the mechanisms of schizophrenia, considering its important role in the processing of multiple motor-related cognitive functioning suggested by the recent literature.

TLDR
The results suggest that gender may play an important role in the structural asymmetry anomalies in schizophrenia. Expand
Cingulate gyrus in schizophrenic patients and normal volunteers
TLDR
The results suggest that left cingulate gyrus size may be inversely related to severity of hallucinations in schizophrenia, and a reliable method to measure the cingulates gyrus on MRI is demonstrated. Expand
Regional changes in brain gray and white matter in patients with schizophrenia demonstrated with voxel-based analysis of MRI
TLDR
Results suggest that a pathological process in schizophrenia predominantly affects the fronto-temporolimbic-paralimbic regions of the brain, and reduced white matter in the connecting bundles may imply morphological substrates for abnormalities in the fronte-thalamic and frontosyllabic connectivity in schizophrenia. Expand
Anterior cingulate gyrus volume and glucose metabolism in autistic disorder.
TLDR
Autism may be characterized by structural and functional alterations in the anterior cingulate gyrus, and both area 24 and area 24' were metabolically less active, in the autistic patients than in the normal subjects. Expand
Superior temporal gyrus volume in schizophrenia: a study using MRI morphometry assisted by surface rendering.
TLDR
A morphometric approach in which information from the cortical surface is incorporated into gyral boundary decisions is developed, which suggests that a significant portion of superior temporal gyrus tissue is omitted with this approach. Expand
Superior temporal gyrus and the course of early schizophrenia: progressive, static, or reversible?
TLDR
Findings have implications for understanding the nature of the neuropathological processes in early schizophrenia, as well as the potential impact of early treatment, and one-year follow-up MRI investigations in a smaller subset of patients suggested that the STG volume reductions may be reversible.

TLDR
Several brain structures in schizophrenia are affected to a greater extent than expected from overall reductions in brain volume, and substantial reductions were also evident in the amygdala and hippocampus. Expand
Planum temporale asymmetry reversal in schizophrenia: replication and relationship to gray matter abnormalities.
TLDR
Although right planum temporale surface area is larger than normal in schizophrenia, gray matter volume is less than the comparison value; thus,gray matter thickness is substantially less than normal. Expand
A follow-up magnetic resonance imaging study of schizophrenia. Relationship of neuroanatomical changes to clinical and neurobehavioral measures.
TLDR
The existence of neuroanatomical and neurobehavioral abnormalities in patients with first-episode schizophrenia indicates that the brain dysfunction occurred before clinical presentation, however, there is also evidence of progression, in which anatomical changes may affect some clinical and neuro behavioral features of the illness in some patients.

Inversion of the hemispheric laterality of the anterior cingulate gyrus in schizophrenics
TLDR
The anterior cingulate gyrus (acg) is involved in mechanisms of attention and emotion, where the right hemisphere is considered to be dominant, and right laterality for weight and surface was observed in the acg of female control brains. Expand
