Summary

The investigations of social cognition can be roughly categorized into five domains including theory of mind (ToM), social perception, social knowledge, attributional style, and emotional processing. The majority of work on attributional style in schizophrenia has focused on the two biases most commonly seen in individuals with paranoid or persecutory delusions. The relationship between social cognition and neurocognition has been of interest to many in the research community with the primary debate focusing on the independence of the two constructs. In an effort to address this possibility and to clarify the nature of the relationship between these constructs in schizophrenia, researchers have utilized four primary strategies: direct examination of the correlations between social cognition and neurocognition, factor analytical techniques, paradigms designed to test for generalized versus specific impairments, and examinations of the contributions of social cognition and neurocognition to functional outcome.
