Visual distractibility was studied in schizophrenic patients. Subjects had to respond to target stimuli while they ignored the visual context, which was either congruent, neutral, or incongruent with respect to the target stimulus. Eighteen schizophrenic patients and 18 healthy subjects performed this flanker task. Schizophrenic patients did not show increased distractibility compared with healthy subjects, and both groups showed the same attenuation of visual context effects when the spatial… Expand
Selective visual attention in patients with frontal lobelesions or Parkinsons disease
TLDR
The data suggest that the cognitive processes underlying selective attention are, in general, spared in patients with frontal lobe lesions or basal ganglia dysfunction. Expand

TLDR
Although the schizophrenia patients showed normal error correction performance, the error negativity was significantly reduced in paranoid schizophrenic patients and the attenuation of the NE possibly reflects disturbed response monitoring in these patients. Expand
Resistance to Interference and Positive Symptomatology in Schizophrenia
Resistance to disruption by visual distractors seems to be a robust finding in schizophrenic patients, especially those with positive symptoms. This seems to contradict the view that positiveExpand
Attentional network task performance in patients with schizophrenia–spectrum disorders: Evidence of a specific deficit
TLDR
The results suggest that compared to the healthy nonpatients, schizophrenia-spectrum patients show a deficit in their executive control network, which supports the notion that schizophrenia-Spectrum patients have a specific attentional deficit, rather than a global one. Expand
Vulnerability to Distraction in Schizophrenia
Attentional processes enhancing relevant information and attenuating competing irrelevant information are required for coherent and effective action. One of deficits that may characterizeExpand
Time course of inhibition and facilitation in patients with schizophrenia
Introduction. Negative priming (NP) paradigms have been used extensively to understand the nature and time course of inhibitory deficits in patient populations. A majority of these studies haveExpand
Response inhibition and interference control: Effects of schizophrenia, genetic risk, and schizotypy
TLDR
Overall, the findings point to rather selective impairments of inhibitory control in the schizophrenia spectrum and confirm a previously observed deficit in antisaccade spatial accuracy as an endophenotype of schizophrenia. Expand
385. Time course of inhibition and facilitation in patients with schizophrenia
TLDR
The results suggest that schizophrenia patients are better able to inhibit irrelevant stimuli that are immediate, but the sustainment of inhibition across very short time intervals (500 ms) may fade compared to controls. Expand
Spatial S-R Compatibility with Centrally Presented Stimuli: An Event-Related Asymmetry Study on Dimensional Overlap
TLDR
The temporal overlap of EEG asymmetries related to direction encoding, automatic response activation, and to response preparation indicated that a widespread cortical network is activated by any salient directional information that enables subjects to respond quickly if the directional code of the stimulus overlaps with the directionalcode of the response. Expand
Conflict Processing in Schizophrenia: Dissociable Neural Mechanisms Revealed by the N2 and Frontal Midline Theta
TLDR
The results not only support the idea that FMθ, not N2, serves as the neural substrate of conflict processing in SZ, but also provide novel insights into the functional roles of ACC during executive control, enriching the current neurocognitive models of SZ. Expand

Shifts in covert visual attention in schizophrenic patients and normal controls
TLDR
It was found that the advantage of valid cuing as compared to invalid cuing was less for left visual field targets in schizophrenic patients, and the differences in reaction times in the different cuing conditions may have been due to differences in the perceived brightness or size of the target. Expand
Abnormal processing of irrelevant information in chronic schizophrenia: Selective enhancement of stroop facilitation
TLDR
facilitation on the Stroop Task appears to be selectively enhanced in schizophrenia, consistent with the hypothesis that a deficit in mesocortical dopamine projections to the frontal cortex underlies some of the cognitive deficits of chronic schizophrenia. Expand
Asymmetries in hemispheric control of attention in schizophrenia.
TLDR
The performance of schizophrenic patients was compared with nonschizophrenic control subjects in their ability to direct visual attention and the patients demonstrated deficits in attention similar to patients from previous studies who had unilateral lesions of the left hemisphere. Expand
Auditory Span of Apprehension Deficits in Schizophrenia
TLDR
Schizophrenic subjects performed as well as subjects from both comparison groups in the simpler background conditions, but were significantly less able to identify the target in the presence of auditory distracters when greater amounts of information were available to be processed. Expand
Attentional cues in chronic schizophrenia: abnormal disengagement of attention.
TLDR
The failure of unpredictable, invalid cues to inhibit RT in chronic schizophrenia may be related to an abnormality in the disengagement operation of selective attention. Expand
The Selective Attention Deficit in Schizophrenia: Limited Resources or Cognitive Fatigue?
TLDR
The results support the existence of two separable selective attention deficits in schizophrenic patients: a difficulty in selectively attending to the salient aspect of a complex stimulus, a difficulty shared with nonschizophrenic subjects, and a difficultyIn maintaining selective attention over time that seems to be more marked in schizophreniaic subjects.

Consideration of pigeon-holing and filtering as dysfunctional attention strategies in schizophrenia.
TLDR
Results suggested that schizophrenic subjects are relatively efficient in using filtering strategies, but have more difficulty employing pigeon-holing strategies to allocate efficiently attentional resources. Expand
Contextual effects on choice reaction time and accuracy in acute and chronic schizophrenics. Impairment in selective attention or in the influence of prior learning?
TLDR
RDC-diagnosed acute and chronic schizophrenics and normal controls carried out a choice reaction time (RT) task in which conflict between the correct response to a target and that cued by simultaneously presented flankers and targets increased RT. Expand
Facilitation of word recognition by semantic priming in schizophrenia.
TLDR
The results support Maher's hypothesis that semantic priming effects are heightened in schizophrenia and exceed both normal control subjects and bipolar subjects on facilitation. Expand
Differential Performance of Acute and Chronic Schizophrenics in a Latent Inhibition Task
TLDR
A task measuring latent inhibition, i.e., the retardation of learning that normally occurs when a subject forms an association to a stimulus previously repeatedly presented without consequence, found that chronic, medicated schizophrenics failed to display this effect. Expand
