Regional cerebral blood flow in schizophrenia: repeated studies during a psychotic episode

Warkentin, Siegbert LU ; Nilsson, A; Risberg, Jarl LU ; Karlson, S; Flekkoy, K; Franzen, G; Gustafson, Lars LU and Rodriguez, G (1990) In Psychiatry Research 35(1). p.27-38
Abstract
Regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) measurements and clinical ratings were performed on 17 schizophrenic patients and a subgroup of 10 medication-free patients before and after treatment. While clinically exacerbated patients had normal blood flow, patients in remission showed a redistribution of flow with lower values in frontal areas. Anteroposterior ratios correlated with the degree of behavioral disturbances, suggesting that the level of frontal lobe activity in schizophrenia may be a function of the patient's clinical state at the time of study.
