Fronto Temporal Connectivity in Schizophrenia during Semantic Memory

Here write a brief overview of your project.


In this project, an event-related auditory semantic memory task is administered. Participants are presented with a semantic category and required to decide whether a subsequent word is a member of the category (e.g., vehicle-bus). To control for phonological processing, other items require a match-mismatch decision between pseudo-words constructed from reordered semantic items (e.g., yodb-rea).

Progress To date, 6 patients with schizophrenia and 3 healthy controls have been studied with this task. Data will be available in year three.

Year Three Update

Data collection and analysis is ongoing. Updated results are expected at the end of year three.
