This essential discusses schizophrenia in a brief, concise manner in light of its developmental neurobiological pathology. It primarily addresses current neuropsychological findings on cognitive dysfunction in schizophrenia as well as common neuropsychological models to explain the complex and heterogeneous psychopathology. A primary concern of the book is to clarify the extent to which these findings can play a role in the treatment of schizophrenia with regard to their use in psychoeducation as well as the design of (meta)cognitive therapy programs.
This Springer essential is a translation of the original German 1st edition essentials, Neuropsychologie der Schizophrenie by Patrizia Thoma, published by Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden GmbH, part of Springer Nature in 2019. The translation was done with the help of artificial intelligence (machine translation by the service DeepL.com). A subsequent human revision was done primarily in terms of content, so that the book will read stylistically different from a conventional translation. Springer Nature works continuously to further the development of tools for the production of books and on the related technologies to support the authors.
