These were predominantly due to overlapping genetic effects (77%, 94%, and 83%, respectively). Some of the genes that transmit the risk for Sz also influence cerebral (white matter) volume.  ...  Significant phenotypic correlations were found between Sz and reduced volumes of the cerebrum (-.22 [-.30/-.14]) and white matter (-.17 [-.25/-.09]) and increased volume of the third ventricle (.18 [.08  ...  ) of the gray and white matter volumes (22) .  ...

2009 Cerebral Cortex  
Given that cortical volume is a product of thickness and surface area, it is plausible that measures of volume capture at least 2 distinct sets of genetic influences.  ...  We conclude that using volume in a genetically informative study, or as an endophenotype for a disorder, may confound the underlying genetic architecture of brain structure.  ...  The same is true for measures of gray matter density, defined as the proportion of gray matter per 3 dimensional imaging voxel (Wright et al. 1995; Thompson et al. 2001) .  ...
