Background Recent evidence from genetic and familial studies revitalized the debate concerning the validity of the distinction between schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Comparing brain imaging findings is an important avenue to examine similarities and differences and, therefore, the validity of the distinction between these conditions. However, in contrast to bipolar disorder, most patient samples in studies of schizophrenia are predominantly male. This a limiting factor for comparing… 
Neuroanatomical voxel-based profile of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder
TLDR
The present review summarises the findings of the voxel-based grey matter comparisons between SCZ and BD, with the objective to highlight the possible consistent anatomical differences between the two disorders.
Common and specific patterns of functional and structural brain alterations in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder: a multimodal voxel-based meta-analysis
TLDR
A meta-analysis of differences in regional homogeneity and voxel-based morphometry between patients and healthy controls for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder separately showed patients with schizophrenia showed more widespread functional and structural impairment, most prominently in the primary sensory motor areas.
Brain structure in schizophrenia vs. psychotic bipolar I disorder: A VBM study
Cingulate abnormalities in bipolar disorder relate to gender and outcome: a voxel-based morphometry study
TLDR
The findings further confirm the putative role of the ACC in the pathophysiology of BD and suggested the presence of gender-specific GM volume reductions in ACC in BD, which may also be associated to poor outcome.
Cognitive Impairment in Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia: A Systematic Review
TLDR
It is found that overall both SZ and BD patients present deficits on all neurocognitive measures compared to healthy controls, and patients with BD might exhibit a cognitive impairment that could be similar to SZ in terms of their profile.
Social cognition in schizophrenia in comparison to bipolar disorder: A meta-analysis
Structural and functional neuroimaging studies in major depressive disorder with psychotic features: a critical review.
TLDR
A proportion of neuroimaging studies carried out to date indicate that MDDP subjects display structural and functional abnormalities in some brain regions specifically implicated in the pathophysiology of mood disorders, such as the subgenual cingulate cortex, which reinforces the validity of the classification of MDDP in proximity to major depression without psychosis.

Are Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia Neuroanatomically Distinct? An Anatomical Likelihood Meta-analysis
TLDR
Bipolar disorder shares many of the same brain regions as schizophrenia, however, relative to neurotypical controls, lower gray matter volume in schizophrenia is more extensive and includes the amygdala.
Magnetic resonance imaging studies in bipolar disorder and schizophrenia: meta-analysis.
TLDR
There appear to be robust changes in brain volume in bipolar disorder compared with healthy volunteers, although most changes do not seem to be diagnostically specific.

TLDR
This review supports the presence of significant differences between schizophrenic males and females arising from the interplay of sex hormones, neurodevelopmental and psychosocial sex differences.
No change to grey and white matter volumes in bipolar I disorder patients
TLDR
The aim of this VBM study was to investigate grey and white matter volumes in a large sample of patients with bipolar I disorder and healthy control subjects and was not able to identify core regions of structural abnormalities in bipolar disorder.
Frontotemporal alterations in pediatric bipolar disorder: results of a voxel-based morphometry study.
TLDR
Reductions in amygdala and accumbens volumes are consistent with neuropsychological data on pediatric BPD, which is consistent with data implicating the prefrontal cortex in emotion regulation, a process that is perturbed in BPD.
Regional Gray Matter Changes in Bipolar Disorder: A Voxel-Based Morphometric Study
TLDR
Evidence of gray matter volume abnormalities in adults with bipolar I disorder is presented, which suggests a neurobiological basis for clinical heterogeneity and posits the possibility of trait deficits.
