BACKGROUND People with schizophrenia demonstrate perceptual organization impairments, and these are thought to contribute to their face processing difficulties. METHOD We examined the neural substrates of emotionally neutral face processing in schizophrenia by investigating neural activity under three stimulus conditions: faces characterized by the full(More)
Silverstein et al. (2010) reported correlations between scores on the UCSD Performance-Based Skills Assessment (UPSA) and scores on two cognitive test batteries (MATRICS Consensus Cognitive Battery and IntegNeuro) that were lower than those reported in past studies. The large sample size of that 4-site study (155 patients with schizophrenia) allowed for(More)
BACKGROUND Past studies of perceptual organization in schizophrenia have demonstrated impairments binding fragmented stimulus components into unified representations. ERP and fMRI data indicate that even under conditions of adequate behavioral task performance, significant and meaningful changes in cortical and subcortical activation are present. Here, we(More)
The present study sought to identify abnormalities in activation in several brain regions in response to an auditory attention task in patients with schizophrenia. Ten patients and twenty healthy control participants were examined using Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (FMRI) measures acquired during an auditory attention task. Region of interest(More)
