Atypical visual and somatosensory adaptation in schizophrenia-spectrum disorders.

G N Andrade, J S Butler, G A Peters, S Molholm, J J Foxe,

Neurophysiological investigations in patients with schizophrenia consistently show early sensory processing deficits in the visual system. Importantly, comparable sensory deficits have also been established in healthy first-degree biological relatives of patients with schizophrenia and in first-episode drug-naive patients.
