Abstract

Handedness in the NIMH monozygotic (MZ) schizophrenic twins was examined and compared to the report of Boklage. Both our findings and Boklage's suggest the existence of a subgroup of schizophrenics characterized by abnormal lateralization and a milder form of schizophrenia. However, unlike Boklage, we hypothesize that this subgroup of schizophrenics is not restricted to MZ twins.
