Özet

Introduction: The relationship between brain morphology and illness duration has been observed as a biomarker in psychiatric and neurologic patients, especially in schizophrenia. In this study, we aimed to investigate the relationship between the volumes of two target regions [prefrontal cortex (PFC) and Heschl's gyrus (HG)] and illness duration in schizophrenia. Such measurements can have implications for then understanding of cognitive impairments in schizophrenia.
