Abstract

Density values of the right and left hemispheres were determined by computerized tomography (CT scan) in 22 normal controls and 21 chronic schizophrenic patients. The data indicated that the chronic schizophrenic patients had less dense brains in both hemispheres than did control subjects. The results also found consistent density differences between the right and left hemispheres in both groups.
