Objectives: To assess whether there are shared or divergent (a) cognitive and (b) emotion processing characteristics among violent individuals with antisocial personality disorder and/or schizophrenia, diagnoses which are commonly encountered at the interface of mental disorder and violence. Cognition and emotion processing are incorporated into models of violence, and thus an understanding of these characteristics within and between disorder groups may help inform future models and therapeutic… Expand
Mentalization and empathy as predictors of violence in schizophrenic patients: Comparison with nonviolent schizophrenic patients, violent controls and nonviolent controls
TLDR
The results emphasise the importance of distinguishing between violence related to core positive symptoms of schizophrenia and that emerging from independent comorbid antisocial personality traits in order to identify targets for screening, detection, prevention and management of violence risk in different subpopulations of schizophrenia patients. Expand
Facial emotion recognition in people with schizophrenia and a history of violence: a mediation analysis
TLDR
Results seem to support the role of perceptual deficits involving different emotions as well as of a mediation played by activation symptoms in facial emotion recognition deficits associated with the propensity to violence, as well certain symptoms mediating their relationship. Expand
Large social cognitive impairments characterize homicide offenders with schizophrenia
TLDR
The results suggest that emotion perception deficits and a tendency to undermentalize may be important for understanding homicide in schizophrenia. Expand
Schizotypy and psychopathic tendencies interactively improve misattribution of affect in boys with conduct problems
TLDR
The results emphasize the need to consider comorbidity in clinical case formulation when working with adolescents with conduct problems and psychopathic tendencies and suggest that the pattern of social cognitive abilities associated with co-occurring psychopathology does not always conform to an often-theorized double-dose of deficit hypothesis. Expand
Increased prevalence of psychopathy and childhood trauma in homicide offenders with schizophrenia compared to nonviolent individuals with schizophrenia
TLDR
Psychopathy and physical abuse was more prevalent among HOS participants compared to non-HOS, but only psychopathy independently predicted homicidal status, confirming the importance of including an evaluation of psychopathic traits in violence risk assessments of individuals with schizophrenia. Expand
Violence as a Social, Clinical, and Forensic Problem
Mental disorders, in particular when severe and in comorbidity with personality and/or substance-use disorders, are associated with a greater risk of aggressive behaviors, although a series ofExpand
Impaired neuropsychological profile in homicide offenders with schizophrenia.
TLDR
The results indicate that HOS participants show clinically significant impairments in global and specific cognition, which are associated with poorer functional outcome in schizophrenia and homicide. Expand
Processing of Emotions in Speech in Forensic Patients With Schizophrenia: Impairments in Identification, Selective Attention, and Integration of Speech Channels
TLDR
Rec rehabilitation approaches may guide rehabilitation approaches matched to the pattern of auditory emotional processing presented by forensic patients with schizophrenia, improving social interactions and quality of life. Expand
Inferior frontal gyrus gray matter volume is associated with aggressive behavior in schizophrenia spectrum disorders
TLDR
The results highlight the role of GM volume in left inferior frontal gyri in patients with history of aggression, which ties in well with previous data reporting involvement of these regions in response control and semantic networks. Expand
A neurocognitive model of the comorbidity of substance use and personality disorders
Abstract Substance use disorders (SUDs) have a longstanding history of cooccurrence with other psychiatric disorders. Of these disorders, personality disorders (PDs) are among the most frequent toExpand

The neuropsychology of antisocial personality disorder
TLDR
Antisocial personality disorder is associated with a broad range of deficits in DLPFC and VMPFC function, and future studies need to examine relationships between the interpersonal and behavioural components of antissocial personality disorder and neuropsychological function. Expand
The correlates of comorbid antisocial personality disorder in schizophrenia.
TLDR
Comparisons of the men with and without APD revealed no differences in the course or symptomatology of schizophrenia, and multivariate models confirmed strong associations of comorbid APD with substance abuse, attention/concentration problems, and poor academic performance in childhood. Expand
A neuropsychological investigation into violence and mental illness
TLDR
Cognitive impairment appears to be more a feature of schizophrenia than of violent behaviour, although there is evidence that a combination of schizophrenia and violent behaviour is associated with greater cognitive deficits. Expand
Prospective cohort study of the relationship between neuro-cognition, social cognition and violence in forensic patients with schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder
TLDR
The neurocognitive impairment experienced by patients with schizophrenia spectrum disorders may create the foundation for the emergence of a range of risk factors for violence including deficits in social reasoning, symptoms, social functioning, and HCR-20 risk items, which in turn are causally related to violence. Expand
Comparative meta-analyses of neuropsychological functioning in antisocial schizophrenic persons.
TLDR
Results indicated antisocial schizophrenic individuals demonstrated widespread deficits across multiple domains (Full Scale IQ, Verbal and Performance IQ, attention, broadly-defined executive function, and memory) in comparison to their antisocial counterparts. Expand
Association between violent behaviour and impaired prepulse inhibition of the startle response in antisocial personality disorder and schizophrenia
TLDR
Investigation of prepulse inhibition of the startle response in APD and schizophrenia in relation to a history of serious violence suggests that neural structures and functions underlying PPI are implicated in (inhibition of) violence. Expand
Neural and behavioural responses to threat in men with a history of serious violence and schizophrenia or antisocial personality disorder
TLDR
This study examined behavioural and brain abnormalities in violent men with schizophrenia or APD during anticipatory fear and found Aberrant activity in occipital and temporal regions when exposed to sustained visual threat cues is associated with a predisposition to violence in both schizophrenia and APD. Expand
Neural mechanisms underlying cognitive control of men with lifelong antisocial behavior
TLDR
The hypothesis that offenders with ASPD display alterations in the neural mechanisms underlying cognitive control and that those alterations relate, at least in part, to personality characteristics was confirmed. Expand
Inhibitory control and negative emotional processing in psychopathy and antisocial personality disorder.
TLDR
Modulation of negative emotional processing by inhibitory control in psychopathy, APD, and control offenders is examined, suggesting appropriate prioritization of inhibition over emotional processing and implications for emotion-cognition interactions and putative etiological processes in these personality disorders are discussed.

TLDR
Offenders with ASPD displayed subtle impairments on executive function tasks of planning ability and set shifting and behavioural inhibition compared to HCs, but among the offenders with ASD there was no significant association between executive function impairment and scores on the measure of psychopathy.
