Childhood-Onset Schizophrenia: Insights from Neuroimaging Studies
Gogtay, Nitin; Rapoport, Judith L.
Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, v47 n10 p1120 Oct 2008
The use of longitudinal neuroimaging to study the developmental perspectives of brain pathology in children with childhood-onset schizophrenia (COS) is described. Structural neuroimaging is capable of providing evidence of neurobiological specificity of COS to distinguish it from other brain abnormalities seen in neuropsychiatric illnesses like pediatric bipolar illness, which exhibit similar clinical symptoms.
