The authors examined the correlation between this dopamine-related sign and severity of delusions (presumably dopaminergic symptoms) in 20 psychotic patients. Delusions were significantly correlated with severity of left-turning bias, and this neurological sign accounted for 33% of the variance in severity of delusions. %K psychosis, hemispheric assymetry, dopamine %P 330-332 %V 150 %D 1993 %L cogprints5315
