Caption: This colour enhanced MRI image of the brain shows one of the theories into what may be the chemical basis for Schizophrenia. Researchers have found reduced receptors for dopamine in the brain (areas colourized). MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is a technique which uses a strong magnetic field, a radiofrequency transmitter and receptors to create images of the human body. No harmful radiation is used. MRI can create very detailed images of anatomy. In addition there are now MRI techniques which can show us where certain functions occur like speaking, hearing, and vision.
