Title - The Interaction Effects of Schizotypal and Autistic Traits on Emotion Recognition and Social Functioning

Speaker: Linlin Fan
PhD Student, UT Dallas

Social cognitive deficits are central to both psychotic disorders and autism spectrum disorders, and the diametrical model proposed that these disorders represent opposite extremes of the social brain continuum. This talk will present a study that tested this theory by investigating the interaction effects between schizotypal and autistic traits on emotion recognition performance and social functioning in a community population, and will discuss the impact of co-occurring psychosis and autistic traits.
