Abstract

The authors examined volumetric occipital asymmetry and evidence of anterior vermian atrophy in the postmortem brains of 12 schizophrenic and 32 control subjects. Although they found no difference in the mean occipital asymmetry they found that for the schizophrenic subjects abnormal occipital asymmetry and vermian atrophy were inversely related.
