Abstract

Enlargement of the lateral cerebral ventricles in some schizophrenic patients is one biological finding in schizophrenia research that has been consistently reproduced with computerized tomography (CT) over recent years. The present study attempts to determine whether increased ventricular size is present in families with a familial load for schizophrenia, and if it is associated with illness within these families.
