Language and thought disorders are core symptoms in schizophrenia. We therefore studied language comprehension processes in patients with schizophrenia and control subjects during a sentence processing paradigm using event-related potentials (ERPs). In the ERP, assignment of syntactic structure to a string of words is reflected by an early left anterior negativity (ELAN) at about 80 ms after stimulus onset. Integration of syntactic and semantic information into a coherent representation is… CONTINUE READING
