ESEG_Dimensions of schizotypy: Semantic processing anomalies and hemispheric dominance as indexed by electrophysiologic and behavioural measures. (2005–2006)
People with schizophrenia and particularly those with clinical ratings of formal thought disorder evidence a wide range of cognitive neuropsychiatric deficits and despite over a decade of research considerable controversy still surrounds the nature of formal thought disorder and its relationship to abnormalities in semantic processing. The aims of the proposed research are to investigate semantic processing abilities as a function of cerebral asymmetry and gender using a model of psychosis proneness in the normal population. A better understanding of the nature of the language difficulties observed in people with schizophrenia is the expected outcome of the research.
