Compared to schizophrenic patients, manic patients evidenced less SPEM impairment in an attention enhancing, sinusoidal target motion condition and had superior performance during a visual fixation condition. SPEM and visual fixation dysfunctions may be more common in schizophrenic than in acutely manic patients, even when the latter are characterized by marked… CONTINUE READING
