The research is based on comparative analysis of 'Hinting Task', 'Faux Pas', and 'Reading the Mind in the Eyes' tests sensitivity in detection of Theory of Mind deficits. The study included 20 subjects with schizophrenia and schizophrenia spectrum disorders with the first episode of psychosis. Every subject performed the three proposed tests. It was shown that success rate of the three tests differed significantly. The non-verbal test 'Reading the Mind in the Eyes' caused the most difficulties… Expand

The patients with schizophrenia performed a significant impairment in the faux pas tasks, and an improving tendency were found in the patient's answers, that may mean a capacity to "learn" in the dimension of mentalization. Expand
Schizophrenia, symptomatology and social inference: Investigating “theory of mind” in people with schizophrenia
The notion that some patients with schizophrenia have difficulties with tasks requiring 'theory of mind' skills and that this deficiency is symptom specific is supported. Expand
Theory of mind impairment in schizophrenia: Meta-analysis
The persistence of ToM deficits in "remitted" patients suggests there are trait related mentalising impairments in schizophrenia, and suggests that future research should consider the potential moderating influence of IQ deficits on ToM performance in 'remitted' patients, as well as the potential effects of residual symptoms.

Social cognitive psychologists (Frith, 1992; Hardy-Baylé et al., 2003) sought to explain the social problems and clarify the clinical picture of schizophrenia by proposing a model that relates manyExpand
Theory of mind and social functioning in first episode psychosis
Investigating associations in those with first episode psychosis who are unaffected by factors related to long-term mental illness finds theory of mind assessed by verbal stimuli is associated with social functioning in a population with firstepisode psychosis. Expand
Theory of mind and motion perception in schizophrenia.
Results revealed that patients with schizophrenia showed deficits on the Eyes Test and the motion coherence task, which suggests that ToM deficits are related to motion perception dysfunctions, which indicates a possible role of motion-sensitive areas in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. Expand
Theory of mind in patients with frontal variant frontotemporal dementia and Alzheimer's disease: theoretical and practical implications.
The hypothesis that patients with fvFTD, but not those with Alzheimer's disease, are impaired on tests of ToM is supported, and may explain some of the abnormalities in interpersonal behaviour that characterize fv FTD. Expand
Theory of mind in schizophrenia: A critical review
There is considerable evidence that ToM is impaired in people with schizophrenia, however, this is perhaps the only unequivocal finding on the topic to date. Expand
