Abstract

The science of neuroimaging has added to our knowledge about the biological substrate for schizophrenia, Despite this, the daunting complexity of neuroimaging findings makes interpretation difficult and firm conclusions about the cerebral structural and functional deficits in schizophrenia seem as far away as ever. Nevertheless, the past year's literature holds tantalizing clues to future breakthroughs and increasing evidence supporting dominant hemispheric dysfunction localized in the temporal lobes. The use of larger, well characterized, sample populations has allowed further analysis of the relationship between imagingparameters and symptomatology. The differentiation of neural tracts connecting the brain regions thought to be involved has enabled experimenters to generate more sophisticated hypotheses to drive their research. In addition to this, the advent of more powerful image analysis algorithms offered the opportunity of automated analysis of large high-resolution data sets and the ability to combine easily images from different modalities, These developments may allow more consensus over image acquisition and analysis between groups and thereby results that are easier to replicate. The conclusions that can be drawn from the pastyear's literature are few. The case for abnormalities in the neural pathways connecting subcortical to cortical and cortical to cortical structures is stronger. The understanding of the neurochemical basis of the aetiology and treatment of schizophrenia is burgeoning.
