The schizophrenic experience is described as an inability to sustain an intentional focus to attention. Attention is captured by incidental details in the schizophrenic patient's environment, and this gives rise to a spurious sense of significance. The patient's inability to direct a train of thought prevents full access to long-term memory so that early components of perception, which are designed to give early warning of threat, are overly influential and unmodulated by further mental… 
Is Schizophrenia a Disorder of Consciousness? Experimental and Phenomenological Support for Anomalous Unconscious Processing
TLDR
It is argued that focusing on unconscious, physiological and automatic processing of information in patients, while contrasting that processing with conscious processing, is a first required step before understanding how distortions or other impairments emerge at the conscious level.
The schizophrenic experience: taken out of context?
TLDR
The present article reviews some of the relevant literature, noting the wide range of experimental paradigms that have been employed and potential links with the neural bases of the disorder.
Consciousness disorders in schizophrenia:a forgotten land for psychopathology
TLDR
There is growing data showing that certain functions that modern science considers to be part of consciousness could be impaired in certain schizophrenics and that this may account for symptoms such as thought insertion, depersonalisation, auditory hallucinations, self fragmentation, disorders of episodic and working memory, passive experiences and delusions of control.

Abstract Drawing on previous models of anxiety, intermediate memory, the positive symptoms of schizophrenia, and goal-directed behaviour, a neuropsychological hypothesis is proposed for the
Schizophrenia and Automatic Processing: An Exploratory Study
TLDR
This study deals with the schizophrenic deficit as one of automatic processing, in terms of a failure in the internal mechanisms which regulate the automatic, parallel, and unconscious processing.
Where Scizophrenia and Consciousness Intersect: Disorders of Consciousness in Schizophrenia
TLDR
A neuro-quantological approach has great potential for understanding the symptoms of schizophrenia as essentially disorders of consciousness as well as the underlying biology of schizophrenia remains metaphorically an undiscovered black box.
Cognitive Abnormalities and the Symptoms of Schizophrenia
TLDR
It is clearly important that disturbances of information processing be shown to be related to more complex forms of psychopathology in schizophrenia, as a means for validating the deficit and demonstrating that it is not trivial.

TLDR
In the present article, certain fundamental areas of convergence between the three states are described and current neurophysiological theories of dream and hallucinogenic drug states are presented, with emphasis upon serotonin neurotransmission.
Disordered thinking in schizophrenia: intermingling and loss of set.
TLDR
In a study of schizophrenic thought pathology, potential loss of set and intermingling were examined and suggested that although the intrusion of personal material is task inappropriate, it still represents a form of systematic, goal-oriented thinking.
Information processing dysfunction in paranoid schizophrenia: a two-factor deficit.
TLDR
The authors think it is unlikely that the results were due to medication effect or to gross psychopathology, and think this two-factor deficit in information processing may result in cognitive disruption.

A cognitive investigation of schizophrenic delusions.
