Abstract

33 of 43 chronic schizophrenic patients (aged 20–39 yrs) were correctly classified by the Luria-Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery for the presence or absence of ventricular enlargement, as assessed by computer tomography (CT) scan. Results are comparable to those of an earlier study by C. G. Golden et al (see record 1981-29339-001). Differences between the studies and the implications of objective CT scan measurement for detecting cerebral atrophy are discussed. (25 ref)
