About The Cover

Mental illnesses arise from the brain but are expressed in the mind. Shown is a surface reconstruction of a schizophrenic patient's brain. The top half shows the internal anatomy, including ventricular enlargement often seen in schizophrenia, and the bottom showed "The Garden of Earthly Delights" by Hieronymus Bosch, which suggests subjective features of the psychotic experience (Copyright usage has expired for this image). See the special section (beginning on 1579) and editorial (1547). [Image: T. Cizadlo, D. Heckel, G. Harris, N. Andreasen, Iowa MHCRC Image Processing Laboratory]
