Are they sure that it is grey matter(cell bodies of neurons) and not white matter(myelinated axons)? Damage of the myelin sheath is not uncommon in these disorders. I suspect misinformation is given to the brain; from poor connections in the upper ganglia(disorders of the upper ganglia can occur; from both hereditary and environmental causes), and that it is a fault in the upper ganglia that are responsible for the auditory and visual hallucinations, found in schizoid disorders. This misinformation could trigger improper secretion responses in the endocrine system, that do not fit the stimuli of a situation. I also suspect that many different disorders can arise from variations in upper ganglia damage. On a side note: If a person lives to be 80 they will lose roughly 3.5 ounces of brain matter in their lifetime. What is the average amount of matter loss, these patients typically lose? That wasn't stated in your article.
