Magnetic resonance imaging was used to study the relation between cortical brain thickness during admission and remission 3 months later in 56 individuals with childhood-onset schizophrenia. Findings revealed that at the time of discharge patients had thicker regional cortex in frontal, temporal and parietal regions thereby indicating that these cortical brain regions were responsible for the efficacy of treatment.
