Factor analytic contributions to the study of information processing in schizophrenia
Department or Administrative Unit
According to reviews of the literature, the primary deficit of schizophrenics is related to “interference of thought processes.” Cameron presented the early view that such interference was due to a schizophrenic’s tendency to include irrelevant information in the performance of perceptual tasks. “Overinclusion” has been supported consistently by several authors with a variety of object sorting tasks. This study considered the effects of variable noise (overinclusion) on variable information loads.
