Social anhedonia and schizotypy in a community sample: the Maryland longitudinal study of schizotypy.
Cross-sectional findings from a community sample provide further support for social anhedonia as a possible indicator of schizotypy.
Neurocognition in Psychometrically Defined College Schizotypy Samples: We Are NOT Measuring the “Right Stuff”
The data suggest that traditionally defined neurocognitive deficits do not approximate the magnitude of subjective complaints associated with psychometrically defined schizotypy, and neurocognition was normal across all measures.

Psychometric Properties of the Revised Physical and Social Anhedonia Scales in Non-Clinical Young Adults
The Revised Physical and Social Anhedonia Scales seem to be adequate for psychosis-risk assessment in non-clinical populations and should further investigate the construct validity in other populations and cultures as well as study its relation to emotional aspects and cognitive endophenotypes.
Cognitive Control of Emotional Information in Schizophrenia: Understanding the Mechanisms of Social Functioning Impairments
Impaired cognitive control is established as one of the mechanisms underlying functional impairment in schizophrenia, demonstrating a direct link between a putative biomarker for schizophrenia (LPFC dysfunction), and one ofThe core behavioral characteristics of the illness social impairments.


Diminished Emotionality and Social Functioning in Schizophrenia
There was a substantial amount of discrepancy between patients’ self-reported levels of emotionality and the ratings of their emotionality as made by trained observers, and implications are discussed.

Anhedonia, positive and negative affect, and social functioning in schizophrenia.
Schizophrenia is characterized by both low PA and elevated NA and that these affective characteristics are a stable feature of the illness, suggesting important links between affect and social functioning in schizophrenia.

The SocAnh Scale, unlike the Perceptual Aberration and Magical Ideation Scales, appears to identify individuals at specific risk for future development of schizophrenia-spectrum disorders.
Impaired attention, genetics, and the pathophysiology of schizophrenia.
It is concluded that the CPT is a cost-effective measure of the attentional deficit commonly found in affected schizophrenia subjects and those at risk for the disorder, and is therefore a potentially valuable screening device for preventive intervention programs.
Self-report measures of schizotypy as indices of familial vulnerability to schizophrenia.
Self-report questionnaires are less successful at assessing underlying familial vulnerability to schizophrenia, and dimensions of schizotypy assessed at personal interview were significantly better at differentiating relatives of schizophrenia and control probands than measures of social anhedonia, magical ideation, or psychoticism.
