Key research article on thought disorder

Eric Tan, Research Assistant in the Cognitive Neuropsychiatry Stream, has recently had his paper 'Building a neurocognitive profile of thought disorder in schizophrenia using a standardized test battery' featured in Psychology Progress as a key research article judged to be of major importance to the field of schizophrenia research. This paper is the first to examine a broad spectrum of cognitive functions in patients with thought disorder, shedding light on one of the core schizophrenia symptoms. It confirms that semantic and executive functioning are critical components in the mechanisms of thought disorder.
