Correlation of regional cerebral blood flow equivalents measured by single photon emission computerized tomography with P300 latency and eye movement abnormality in schizophrenia.
Single photon emission tomography with the intravenous blood flow marker 99mTc-exametazime was carried out in 14 acutely ill drug-free schizophrenic patients from whom P300 event-related potential, smooth eye pursuit eye tracking and verbal fluency were measured within a few days of scanning. Smooth pursuit eye movement abnormality correlated significantly with abnormal tracer uptake in superior pre-frontal cortex on the right and left and inferior pre-frontal cortex on the left. Abnormal eye...Expand abstract
