The presentation of those varied techniques in an built-in model offers the reader with a distinct viewpoint and a wealth of latest questions for destiny collaborative research.

W. Pettegrew and N. J. Minshew volume of brain sampled by spectroscopy as well as the 31p NMR spectra, are acquired with the same probe containing an 8 inch 31p surface coil and a 3 inch surface coil dual-tuned at both the 31p and IH frequencies. IH images for spectral localization are obtained by transmitting with a Helmholtz body coil, and receiving with the 3 inch surface coil. The localized IH images and the 31p NMR spectra are from approximately 15-20 cm3 of the dorsal prefrontal cortex. 1 ppm.

Suggest that even if only indirect, the involvement of the basal ganglia in schizophrenia may be important. The basal ganglia provide a major neural system through which 44 C. R. Gerfen the cerebral cortex affects behavior. In this paper the neuroanatomical and neurochemical systems involved in processing cortical input by the basal ganglia will be described. The striatum is suggested to consist of multiple levels of functional compartments that are related in some respects to the laminar and regional organization of the cortex, but in other respects provide a unique form of neural processing.
