Research on emotion perception in schizophrenia has focused primarily on the perception of static faces displaying different emotion signals or expressions. However, perception of emotion in daily life relies on much more than just the face. In this article, we review the role of context in emotion perception among people with and without schizophrenia. We argue that not only is context central to the perception of emotion, it in fact helps to construct the perception. Implications for future… 
Emotion deficits in people with schizophrenia.
TLDR
Differences in brain activation are typically observed in areas tightly coupled with cognitive control, such as the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, and thus the latest research on emotion in schizophrenia explicitly integrates emotion and cognition.
Facial emotion perception abnormality in patients with early schizophrenia
Unseen Affective Faces Influence Person Perception Judgments in Schizophrenia
TLDR
It is shown that early processing of affective information is intact in schizophrenia but the integration of this information with semantic contexts is problematic, suggesting that the ability to rapidly process affectives is important for anticipation of future pleasurable events.
“ Seeing ” Affective Information in the Face and Linkages to Affective Deficits
TLDR
It is shown that early processing of affective information is intact in schizophrenia but the integration of this information with semantic contexts is problematic, suggesting that the ability to rapidly process affectives is important for anticipation of future pleasurable events.
70-E-b PC The effect of antipsychotic therapy on social inference and emotion recognition in schizophrenic patients
TLDR
The results highlight the need for further investigations about social cognition in schizophrenic patients in order to provide personalized and integrated programs and ameliorate clinical outcome of these patients.
Context Effects on Facial Affect Recognition in Schizophrenia and Autism: Behavioral and Eye-Tracking Evidence.
TLDR
In every condition, IQ was related to emotion-recognition accuracy for the SCZ group but not for the ASD or TD groups, suggesting a lower reliance on facial information within ambiguous emotional contexts relative to congruent ones.
Title of Thesis: THE VALUATION OF SOCIAL REINFORCEMENT IN SCHIZOPHRENIA
TLDR
Among participants who appropriately learned task contingencies, individuals with schizophrenia failed to use genuine smiles to motivate choices to the same extent as controls; however, money was equally valued.
Paranoia Symptoms Moderate the Impact of Emotional Context Processing on Community Functioning of Individuals with Schizophrenia

Basic concepts and methods from affective science on the psychological and neural mechanisms contributing to emotions and the ways in which this research has advanced the understanding of emotional response deficits in schizophrenia are reviewed.
Context in Emotion Perception

Emotion Categorization Perception in Schizophrenia in Conversations with Different Social Contexts
TLDR
The patients with schizophrenia were less discriminative in their categorization of emotion perception in conversations with different social contexts, and were more alert to angry facial expressions in the process of facial expressions morphing from happy to angry, independent of the social context.

TLDR
Results suggested that differences between schizophrenics and normals on such tasks reflect a generalized performance deficit, rather than a specific emotion recognition deficit.
Context Is Routinely Encoded During Emotion Perception
TLDR
For the first time, it is shown that people remember the context more often when asked to label an emotion in a facial expression than whenAsked to judge the expression’s simple affective significance.
Emotional context processing is impaired in schizophrenia
TLDR
The reduced influence of context upon threat-related expressions in schizophrenia may contribute to the misperception of threat in situations where contextual information should appease such an interpretation.
