Abnormalities of information processing have played a central role in understanding schizophrenia since the time of Kraepelin and Bleuler. Clearly, schizophrenia spectrum patients have profound problems focusing attention on salient cues and Cited by: Attention and Information Processing in Schizophrenia Article (PDF Available) in The British journal of social and clinical psychology 15(2) July with 42 Reads How we measure 'reads'.

Attention deficits are considered to be fundamental in patients with schizophrenia. During attention tasks, patients with schizophrenia have been shown to display increased brain activity in some neuroimaging studies but reduced brain activity in others.

These conflicting findings may be due to some study designs primarily eliciting transient engagement of attention and other study designs Cited by: Get this from a library.

Cornblatt, Mark F. Lenzenweger, Robert H. Schizophrenia is widely thought to involve deficits of attention. However, the term attention can be defined so broadly that impaired performance on virtually any task could be construed as evidence for a deficit in attention, and this has Attention and information processing in schizophrenia book cumulative progress in understanding attention deficits in schizophrenia.

To address this problem, we divide the general concept of attention into Cited by: Information processing disorder is a disorder characterized by a deficiency in the ability to use the information gathered by our five senses efficiently.

This condition differs from a type of cognitive or intellectual deficit, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, impaired vision, or hearing loss.

The Information Processing model is another way of examining and understanding how children develop cognitively. This model, developed in the 's and 's, conceptualizes children's mental processes through the metaphor of a computer processing, encoding, storing, and decoding data.

By ages 2 to 5 years, most children have developed the. It reviews immediate memory of visual events and immediate memory of auditory events. The chapter highlights the techniques of masking, divided attention, auditory persistence, and partial recognition.

It focuses on the relationship of the precategorical acoustic.

Decrease in Attention and Processing Speed May Help Recognize Those At-Risk For Psychosis. (attention) and processing speed - should be added to the arsenal identifying "at-risk" individuals with a likelihood of developing a psychotic disorder within a year.

One of the most obvious features of childhood schizophrenia is lack of focus. ABSTRACT. Background and Objectives: Attention is a central mechanism controlling information processing, activating and inhibiting processes, and forming a complex system including diferent networks in specific areas of the brain correctly assess the role of attention in schizophrenia it is necessary to discriminate its different attentional components, which may by selectively altered.

• In recent years, the idea that schizophrenia involves a primary disturbance of the higher cognitive (ie, cortical) thinking processes has been challenged by investigators who have shown that there may be a primary disturbance in schizophrenia in the early stages of information processing that occurs during the first few hundred milliseconds after the stimulus reaches the sense by: Neuroleptics and Attention - Information Processing Trait Markers in Schizophrenia / Herbert E.

Spohn. Antipsychotic Medications and Schizophrenia: Effects in Acute and Maintenance Treatment of the Illness / Nina R. Schooler; Pt. Conceptual Structure and Family Intervention. Schizophrenia is a mental disorder characterized by significant alterations in perception, thoughts, mood, and behavior.

Symptoms are described in terms of positive, negative, and cognitive symptoms. The positive symptoms of schizophrenia are the same for any psychosis and are sometimes referred to as psychotic symptoms. These may be present in any of the different psychoses, and are often Symptoms: False beliefs, confused thinking, hearing.

OBJECTIVE: The goal of this investigation was to study the relationship between information-processing deficits and thought disorder in schizophrenic patients.

METHOD: Fifty-two subjects diagnosed with schizophrenia were administered tests of information processing and thought disorder. Book Description. Attention has long been recognized as a central topic in human psychology. And, in an increasingly ‘connected’ world, understanding our attentional networks—in particular, their role in the selection of information, the maintenance of alertness and self-control, and the management of emotions—is, arguably, more important than ever.

The attention/ information processing deficits that might underlie the clinical manifestations of illogical thinking and loose associations in childhood onset schizophrenia are discussed.
