Hippocampal pyramidal neuron size was determined in all Cornu Ammonis subregions – CA1–CA4 – in five chronic schizophrenic men and compared with eight controls matched with respect to age and sex. Four out of five probands and the same eight controls had been examined in a previous study showing a significantly lower cell count and disorientation of pyramidal cells in the CA1– CA3 subregions of the schizophrenics. There was also a negative correlation between the total number of cells and the… CONTINUE READING
