Neural mechanisms of early visual dysfunction in psychosis


This study was reviewed as a JIT under STUDY00006280. This submission will complete the initial IRB review process. We propose to study visual perception in PwP as a window into deviant neural processing. This allows us to use well-developed paradigms from animal models, and to translate directly from basic neuroscience to a clinical population.

I'm interested
