Facial Expression and Sex Recognition in Schizophrenia and Depression

Published inCanadian Journal of Psychiatry, vol. 50, no. 9, p. 525-533
Publication date2005

Impaired facial expression recognition in schizophrenia patients contributes to abnormal social functioning and may predict functional outcome in these patients. Facial expression processing involves individual neural networks that have been shown to malfunction in schizophrenia. Whether these patients have a selective deficit in facial expression recognition or a more global impairment in face processing remains controversial.
