Conference paper


Recent interest in neuroanatomical schizophrenia research has focused on three major brain regions: (1) the limbic system with its important telencephalic components comprising the medial temporal lobe structures and the cingulate gyrus; (2) the prefrontal cortex, which roughly consists of frontal cortical areas anterior to the level of the genu of the corpus callosum; and (3) the basal ganglia, most importantly the globus pallidus.
