Examining motion speed processing in schizophrenia using the flash lag illusion
The Miiller-Lyer Illusion as a Tool for Schizophrenia Screening
Data showing the degree of illusion in capuchin monkeys (Cebus spp.), a possible animal model for schizophrenia, is presented, suggesting that Cebus might be a good model for the experimental study of schizophrenia.
Reduced P300 and P600 amplitude in the hollow-mask illusion in patients with schizophrenia
Acquisition of visual priors and induced hallucinations in chronic schizophrenia
It is found that, although patients were slower than controls, they showed comparable acquisition of perceptual priors, correctly approximating the stimulus statistics, which suggests that patients have no statistical learning deficits in this task.
Altered perception of apparent motion in schizophrenia spectrum disorder
Cognitive binding in schizophrenia: weakened integration of temporal intersensory information.
The present findings point to ways in which the disconnection (or Gestalt) hypothesis of schizophrenia can be refined, suggesting more specific markers of neurocognitive functioning and potential targets of treatment.
What visual illusions teach us about schizophrenia
How illusions have been used to explore and reveal the core features of visual perception in schizophrenia from a psychophysical, neurophysiological and functional point of view are reviewed and an integration of these findings into a common hierarchical Bayesian inference framework is proposed.
A Special Illusion: Motion-induced Blindness
: When the salient static targets are superimposed on the moving background which moves within a scope of certain space, visual targets spontaneouslydisappears from visual awareness and subsequently
A Common Mechanism for Perceptual Reversals in Motion-Induced Blindness, the Troxler Effect, and Perceptual Filling-In
The temporal dynamics of illusory disappearances was compared for each phenomenon, and normalized durations of disappearances were well fit by a gamma distribution with similar shape parameters for each phenomena, suggesting that they may be driven by a single oscillatory mechanism.


Impaired sensory processing as a basis for object-recognition deficits in schizophrenia.
The results support models of widespread dysfunction in information processing in patients with schizophrenia involving both sensory and cognitive regions and suggest that deficits in perceptual closure may contribute to the muted world experience of patients with the persistent negative symptoms of schizophrenia.
Motion-induced blindness in normal observers
It is shown that this motion-induced blindness (MIB) phenomenon is unlikely to reflect retinal suppression, sensory masking or adaptation, and might reflect a disruption of attentional processing, which shifts the system into a winner-takes-all mode.
Perceptual organization in schizophrenia spectrum disorders: empirical research and theoretical implications.
A synthesis of this evidence reveals that this body of work has produced reliable evidence for deficits in schizophrenia, as well as for the clinical, stimulus, and task parameters associated with normal and abnormal performance.
Dot Enumeration Perceptual Organization Task (DEPOT): evidence for a short-term visual memory deficit in schizophrenia.
The pattern of results was consistent with neither the Stage 1 deficit nor the general deficit hypotheses, but a Stage 2, STVM deficit hypothesis could account parsimoniously for the data.
How Specific is the Gestalt-Informed Approach to Schizophrenia?
UHLHAAS & SILVERSTEIN (2003a) argue that Gestalt psychology has continuing relevance for an understanding of schizophrenia. Their line of argumentation is based on perception; on the Gestalt-like
Gorillas in Our Midst: Sustained Inattentional Blindness for Dynamic Events
A new study builds on classic studies of divided visual attention to examine inattentional blindness for complex objects and events in dynamic scenes and suggests that the likelihood of noticing an unexpected object depends on the similarity of that object to other objects in the display and on how difficult the priming monitoring task is.
