Twenty-eight schizophrenic patients and 22 normal control subjects underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and topographic electroencephalography (EEG) in a study attempting to correlate morphological and electrophysiological findings. Schizophrenic patients had larger anterior horns of the lateral ventricles and third ventricles than normal control subjects. Schizophrenic patients showed more delta wave activity in the right parietooccipital region than normal control subjects. Alpha 2 wave activity was reduced in the entire region in schizophrenic patients. In schizophrenic patients, a significant positive correlation was seen between the area of the third ventricle and delta wave activity in the right occipital region. These results suggest that schizophrenic patients may have a dysfunction of diencephalic structures associated with morphological abnormality.
