3D renderings of anatomical differences found between schizophrenia patients and healthy individuals. Red and yellow represent areas of relatively reduced brain tissue volume in patients. Blue areas represent relatively larger brain tissue volumes found in certain deep structures, and could, to some extent, reflect effects of medication. Volume increases were also found in the ventricles, reflecting brain tissue loss and increase of cerebrospinal fluid.
