Individuals with schizophrenia exhibit impaired social cognition, which manifests as difficulties in identifying emotions, feeing connected to others, inferring people's thoughts and reacting emotionally to others. These social cognitive impairments interfere with social connections and are strong determinants of the degree of impaired daily functioning in such individuals. Here, we review recent findings from the fields of social cognition and social neuroscience and identify the social… 
Social Cognition in Schizophrenia: From Social Stimuli Processing to Social Engagement
TLDR
A framework which takes into account the dynamic nature of social processes is proposed, which could facilitate the development of both basic research and clinical applications oriented to psychiatric populations.
Social cognition in schizophrenia
TLDR
The results suggest that deficits in social cognition are a defining feature of schizophrenia, regardless of race or culture, and additional research across different patient populations will be important for further characterizing how race impacts the relationship between social cognition and social functioning.
Can Antipsychotics Improve Social Cognition in Patients with Schizophrenia?
TLDR
The results do not engender optimism for the possibility that antipsychotic drugs can specifically facilitate social recovery, and large-scale longitudinal investigations are needed to explore the unclear relationships between social cognition, symptoms, and functional outcome.
RC2S: A Cognitive Remediation Program to Improve Social Cognition in Schizophrenia and Related Disorders
TLDR
The RC2S program is presented and the advantages of computer-based simulation to improve social cognition and social functioning in people with psychiatric disorders are discussed.
Schizophrenia and Social Cognition: A Review of Concepts and Treatment Options
TLDR
A review and update on the main concepts of social cognition and its disturbances caused by schizophrenia, along with the treatment options available and the direction in which future research is heading is offered.
Cognitive bias salience in patients with schizophrenia in relation to social functioning: A four-case observation study.
TLDR
Heterogeneity of cognitive biases and their influence on social function in vivo was observed in patients with less affected domains of emotional processing and theory of mind, while neurocognitive statuses were incongruent to levels of social functioning.
Cognition and social cognition in non-psychotic siblings of patients with schizophrenia
TLDR
It is suggested that difficulties in some domains of social cognition are associated with a genetic vulnerability for schizophrenia and in these areas, cognitive difficulties account only partially for social cognition problems suggesting that these two domains may represent relatively independent liability factors.

TLDR
