Impaired top-down processes in schizophrenia: A DCM study of ERPs
[Perception of physiological visual illusions by individuals with schizophrenia].
The emerging picture is that some individuals with schizophrenia are "resistant" to some of the illusions and are able to assess visual phenomena more "rationally", yet certain illusions are perceived more intensely.
What visual illusions teach us about schizophrenia
How illusions have been used to explore and reveal the core features of visual perception in schizophrenia from a psychophysical, neurophysiological and functional point of view are reviewed and an integration of these findings into a common hierarchical Bayesian inference framework is proposed.
Seeing the world dimly: the impact of early visual deficits on visual experience in schizophrenia.
The results offer a unifying explanation for disparate studies and suggest that deficits in early sensory gain affect subsequent integrative processes.
Impaired perceptual processing and conceptual cognition in patients with anxiety disorders: A pilot study with the binocular depth inversion paradigm
The findings suggest that anxiety patients could have abnormalities in central perceptual processing, top-down processing (conceptual cognition), and reality testing similar to (pro-)psychotic conditions.


Visual 3D illusion: A systems-theoretical approach to psychosis
The data demonstrate that impairment of binocular depth inversion reflects a common final pathway, characterized by an impairment of adaptive systems regulating perception, and is unable to correct the implausible perceptual hypothesis.
Reduced binocular depth inversion in schizophrenic patients
Experiences of alien control in schizophrenia reflect a disorder in the central monitoring of action
Patients with experiences of alien control of their thoughts and actions who formed a subgroup of those classified as schizophrenic, were significantly less likely to make error corrections in the absence of visual feedback.
Do patients with schizophrenia exhibit aberrant salience?
The hypothesis that aberrant salience is related to the presence of delusions in medicated patients with schizophrenia is supported, but a link with negative symptoms warrants further investigation in unmedicated patients.
A Three-Component-System Hypothesis of Psychosis

‘vulnerability’ to schizophrenia may be interpreted as a consequence of a constitutional deficiency of the brain which results in an inability to stabilise, under specially challenging conditions, the interaction between different substructures of the human brain.
Reduced binocular depth inversion in regular cannabis users
Impaired central error-correcting behavior in schizophrenia.
The results suggest that schizophrenics are deficient in the ability to monitor ongoing motor behavior on the basis of internal, self-generated cues.

The disconnection hypothesis is reviewed and its implications for how one might use the powerful tools that are emerging from functional neuroimaging and genomics, to pinpoint the mechanisms that might cause schizophrenia.
Synaptic Plasticity and Dysconnection in Schizophrenia
Functional disconnection between the prefrontal and parietal cortices during working memory processing in schizophrenia: a[15(O)]H2O PET study.
The findings suggest prefrontal-parietal functional disconnection, particularly prefrontal dissociation and abnormal prefrontal- parietal interaction, during working memory processing in schizophrenia.
