CSF homovanillic acid levels showed a significant negative correlation with ventricle-brain ratios (VBRs) in a group of drug-free chronic schizophrenic male veterans, while CSF 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid levels showed a similar, nearly significant trend. The response of plasma human growth hormone to 0.75 mg of apomorphine also demonstrated a significant negative correlation with VBR in this group, but other measures of central neurotransmitter activity were unrelated to ventricular size.
