Abstract

The relations of birth weight to CT scan measures of lateral ventricular size, third ventricular size, frontal cortical sulcal prominence, and parieto-occipital cortical sulcal prominence were examined in 24 chronic schizophrenic patients. In contrast to the inverse correlation between birth weight and ventricular size found among offspring of schizophrenic parents in the Danish High-Risk Study, and the predictions of the subsequent hypothesis, no significant relations between birth weight and CT scan measures were observed in this study
