Anatomical differences in brain left temporal lobe, hippocampus, amygdala and corpus callosum are pointed as well as in thalamus and nuclei thalamici. Differences in dopamine system, glutamate receptors, level of N-acetylaspartat, some brain neoropeptides and their peptidases are present. In functional aspect the accent is on left temporal and prefrontal areas in schizophrenics.
