Auditory sensory processing is defective at several stages in schizophrenics, as revealed by electrophysiological recordings. The purpose of this study was to assess the relationship between two of these defects in schizophrenics and their relatives. One defect is illustrated by the failure to gate the P50 wave of the auditory evoked potential in the conditioning-testing paradigm. In this paradigm, paired clicks are presented to the subject. Normals suppress or gate the P50 response to the… CONTINUE READING
