Data set - Cortical neuron number in schizophrenia with focus on area 24: a post-mortem case-control study

Stereological data accompanying the study:

Gaus, R., Popal, M., Heinsen, H. et al. Reduced cortical neuron number and neuron density in schizophrenia with focus on area 24: a post-mortem case–control study. Eur Arch Psychiatry Clin Neurosci (2022). https://doi.org/10.1007/s00406-022-01513-6

The repository contains a table (raw_stereology_data.xlsx) with clinical characteristics and raw stereological estimates from the brains of 13 male patients with schizophrenia and 13 age-matched male controls.

If you plan to use this data for a publication, please inform us about it and don’t forget to cite the source of the data.

Description of data

Each row in the table represents one individual hemisphere. The table contains the following columns:

Column Description Unit
subject Subject ID
code Subject code
excl see below*
excl_cgm see below*
diagnosis Control: 0, Patient: 1
hemisphere Left or right hemisphere
age Age of subject years
pmi Post-mortem interval hours
fix Fixation time days
cgm_vol Volume of whole CGM cm3
cgm_nn Total neuron number in whole CGM x109
cgm_nd Total neuron density in whole CGM x106 / cm3
area24_vol Volume of whole area 24 cm3
area24_nn Total neuron number in whole area 24 x106
area24_nd Total neuron density in whole area 24 x106 / cm3
area24layer5_vol Volume of layer V of area 24 cm3
area24layer5_nn Total neuron number in layer V of area 24 x106
area24layer5_nd Total neuron density in layer V of area 24 x106 / cm3
ven_number VEN number in layer V of area 24 x103
ven_density VEN density in layer V of area 24 x103 / cm3

*All hemispheres where columns excl / excl_cgm carry the value 1 were excluded from the statistical analysis for all outcome variables / only the CGM-related outcome variables (cgm_vol, cgm_nn, cgm_nd) due to missing sections.

CGM: cortical gray matter; VEN: von Economo neuron
