The Role of COMT in Schizophrenic-Like Cognitive Impairment and Social Functioning in Children with 22q11 Deletion Syndrome 2007 1826 Schizophrenia is a severe psychiatric disorder that is hypothesized to represent the most extreme manifestation of a continuum of impairment referred to as schizotypy. As such, many of the cognitive, clinical, behavioral, and neuroanatomical features...
Neurological soft signs in psychometrically identified schizotypy 2008 1984 Patients with schizophrenia often exhibit structural brain abnormalities, as well as neurological soft signs, consistent with its conceptualization as a neurodevelopmental disorder. Neurological soft signs are mild, presumably nonlocalizing, neurolog...
A three-year longitudinal study of social anhedonia and comparison groups 2005 1548 " The present study is a three-year longitudinal reassessment of schizotypic young adults and comparison participants identified by the Revised Social Anhedonia Scale (Eckblad, Chapman, Chapman, & Mishlove, 1982). Diaz, Dickerson, and Kwapil (2002) c...
The relationship of social anhedonia and social anxiety with schizotypy and their expression in daily life 2006 3513 "Schizotypy involves social disinterest (anhedonia) and social anxiety. The first study examined the relationship of these constructs in 364 young adults. As hypothesized, there was a moderate association between them, which diminished after partial...
Neuropsychological functioning in individuals at-risk for schizophrenia : a multidimensional investigation of attention, executive functioning, and memory 2006 2272 "Schizophrenia is currently conceptualized as a neurodevelopmental disorder in which subtle brain dysmaturation is expressed across a continuum of impairment referred to as schizotypy. Recently, schizophrenia researchers have attempted to identify ma...
Looking for bipolar spectrum psychopathology: identification and expression in daily life 2010 1190 Current clinical and epidemiological research provides support for a continuum of bipolar psychopathology: a bipolar spectrum that ranges from subclinical manifestations to full-blown bipolar disorders. The present research examined the validity of t...
A continuum of suspiciousness and its relation to schizotypy and social anxiety 2010 4164 Paranoia, a continuum of clinical and subclinical experiences in which other people are assumed or suspected to have negative and harmful intentions, is a key symptom of schizotypy (including schizophrenia spectrum disorders). Subclinical paranoia is...
The impact of Catechol-O-Methyl transferase on working memory in psychometrically identified schizotypy 2012 1826 Patients with schizophrenia often exhibit impairment in working memory that is influenced by dopamine availability in the prefrontal cortex. Dopamine availability in the prefrontal cortex is regulated in part by the activity of the Catechol-O-Methyl ...
A 3-Year longitudinal study of risk for bipolar spectrum psychopathology 2013 1684 Current clinical and epidemiological research provides support for a continuum of bipolar psychopathology: a bipolar spectrum that ranges from subthreshold characteristics to clinical disorders. The present research examined the predictive validity o...
Examining the role of impulsivity in bipolar spectrum psychopathology: identification and expression in daily life 2016 541 Impulsivity is a core feature of bipolar spectrum psychopathology and may confer risk for poor outcomes or progression along the bipolar spectrum. However, the associations between different multidimensional impulsivity facets and bipolar spectrum ps...
Development and psychometric properties of the Multidimensional Schizotypy Scale: a new measure for assessing positive, negative, and disorganized schizotypy 2017 857 This dissertation reports on the development of a new self-report questionnaire measure of schizotypy – the Multidimensional Schizotypy Scale (MSS). Schizotypy offers a useful and unifying construct for understanding schizophrenia-spectrum psychopath...
A meta-analysis of context integration deficits across the schizotypy spectrum 2018 18 Schizophrenia is the most extreme manifestation of schizotypy, a continuum of symptoms and impairment that ranges from minimal impairment to full-blown psychosis. Schizophrenia has been described as a disorder of disrupted context integration (CI), t...
