A sample of 19 DSM-III-R schizophrenics and 94 controls with no mental illness from the Copenhagen high-risk project was used to test the hypothesis that social class of origin is related to adult CT measures of ventricular, sulcal, Sylvian fissure and anterior interhemispheric fissure enlargement, cerebellar pathology, and brain volume. The schizophrenics and controls were divided into high and low SES-of-origin. No significant differences emerged between the high and low SES-of-origin subjects within the schizophrenic and control groups on any of the six CT measures.
