Schizotypy and Ketamine: what can Analogue Models tell us about Semantic Memory Impairments in Schizophrenia?

Erica Neill

Schizophrenia is associated with significant impairments in semantic memory. Despite the fact that these deficits have been linked to quality of life and the development and maintenance of psychotic symptoms, our understanding of the nature of these impairments is poor. Unfortunately, because schizophrenia is associated with multiple cognitive deficits, and because of the confounding effects of medication, it is difficult to examine semantic deficits in isolation. In response to such difficulties, researchers have begun to rely on analogue models to better understand the semantic deficits associated with schizophrenia.
