Cognition in Schizophrenia and schizotypal personality

Research led by Keith Laws looking at:

  • The cognitive deficits seen in people diagnosed with Schizophrenia (especially memory and executive function).
  • The efficacy of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy as an intervention for people with psychosis (Schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder).
  • The link between early life trauma and psychosis-like traits in the healthy population and what this might tell us about the continuum model of psychosis.
  • Factors that influence visual and verbal hallucinations in healthy individuals – and their implications for understanding hallucinations in psychosis.
  • Factors underpinning possible links between paranormal thinking and delusional ideation in healthy individuals.
