The total number of neurons was estimated in eight brains from chronic schizophrenic men and compared with 16 gender- and age-matched controls. The average total neocortical nerve cell number was 22.12.10(9) in schizophrenics and 22.06.10(9) in controls. The estimate of total cell numbers can not demonstrate more subtle neuronal losses of specific cell types or cell loss in specific regions, but the result does not indicate that a major cell loss in the neocortex of schizophrenics is part of… CONTINUE READING
