Abstract

Neuroanatomical and histological findings from post-mortem brains, as well as in vivo findings from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies, suggest the presence of morphologic temporal lobe abnormalities in schizophrenia. To determine whether or not sulco-gyral pattern abnormalities in the temporal lobe could be detected in vivo, we applied computerized surface rendering techniques to MR data sets in order to make both qualitative and quantitative analyses of three-dimensional reconstructions of the temporal and frontal cortex in 15 schizophrenic patients and 15 normal controls. The qualitative analysis, based on a visual classification of the temporal lobe sulco-gyral pattern by 4 raters blind to diagnosis, showed that in schizophrenics there was a more vertical orientation to the sulci in the left temporal lobe, with an interrupted course of sulci due to gyri coursing across the sulci. Normal controls, in contrast, showed a more horizontal orientation with no interruptions. These findings were supported by the quantitative analysis, where more sulcal lines, representing an interrupted course of sulci, were observed in the temporal lobes (more pronounced on the left) in schizophrenics than in normal controls. These data suggest that some of the abnormalities observed in schizophrenia may have their origin in alterations occurring during the course of neurodevelopment when the sulco-gyral pattern is determined.
