The ordering of words in category fluency lists is indicative of the semantic distance between items in conceptual memory. Several studies have concluded from structural analyses of such data, using cluster analysis or multidimensional scaling, that the semantic memory of patients with schizophrenia is more disorganized than that of controls. Previous… (More)
Patients with schizophrenia have difficulty recognising the emotion that corresponds to a given facial expression. According to signal detection theory, two separate processes are involved in facial emotion perception: a sensory process (measured by sensitivity which is the ability to distinguish one facial emotion from another facial emotion) and a… (More)
We aimed to investigate cerebellar structural abnormalities and their functional significance in patients with schizophrenia. Forty right-handed men with schizophrenia and 40 sex, age and handedness matched controls underwent a volumetric magnetic resonance scan with 1 mm3 isotropic spatial resolution. Cerebellar grey- and white-matter volumes were analysed… (More)
Breaking bad news is a difficult task faced daily by the busy doctor. This article draws on some of the literature on the topic and offers some practical advice on how to break bad news.
This document is provided as an electronic appendix to the article " A new dissimilarity measure for finding semantic structure in category fluency data with implications for understanding memory organization in schizophrenia ". This appendix contains two parts. In the first we derive a measure of the distance between two items in a fluency list that is… (More)
