is the purpose of the study?
The purpose of this study is to better understand the
role that the brain plays in attention, learning, and memory. We will
also learn more about how people process interpersonal and emotional
information. We will study whether abilities to deal with these forms
of information are connected to how well people manage to function
in the community. We will compare healthy individuals from the community
with patients who have schizophrenia.
