Abstract

Brain imaging studies have shown superior temporal gyrus (STG) volumeloss and abnormal patterns of asymmetry in schizophrenia; however, these are not consistent findings. Post-mortem volumetry of three different STG regions (defined by external landmarks) was used to compare 17schizophrenics to 20 age- and sex-matched controls. Total STG volumesdid not differ. A significant gray-matter volume reduction in schizophrenics was observed in the middle compartment (reaching from the mamillary body to the lateral geniculate body). This may have been relatedto reduced length of this region, particularly in schizophrenic females. These results reflect the problematic issue of defining boundariesof macroscopic brain structures.
