А study of 153 brain scans а in particular furrow has been linked, in the vicinity of the front of each hemisphere, hallucinations in schizophrenia.
This fold is rather shorter in patients who hallucinate compared with those who do not do this.
It is an area of the brain, seems to be а role in the distinction of the real notions of love.
Researchers say the results, published in Nature Communications, may help in early diagnosis.
The brain folds, called the para-cingulate sulcus, or PCS, different in shape between individuals. It is one of the last wrinkles to develop in the brain just before birth.
“The brain develops throughout life, but also other aspects such as whether the PCS are а particularly prominent specialists or not -can be evident in the brain at an early stage,” said Jon Simons, а a neuroscientist at the University of Cambridge, UK.
“It could be that а reduction in the brain to fold someone is а predisposition to the development of hallucinations later in life.”
If further work shows that the difference can be detected before the symptoms, for example, Dr. Simons said, it might be possible to offer additional support for people who face the increased risk.
But he stressed that schizophrenia is а complicated phenomenon. Hallucinations are one of the main symptoms, but some patients are diagnosed on the basis of other irregular thought processes.
