Increased VBR has been shown in some studies to correlate with an absence of family history of schizophrenia and with Winter-Spring birth. In an attempt to obtain a clearer picture of the contribution of environmental and genetic factors to VBR, we studied 54 patients with DSM III-R schizophrenia...

A blind examination of computerized axial tomography (CT) scans of 35 normal subjects assessed for handedness (20 right- and 15 mixed-handers) confirmed this prediction for the latter group only...
