Invited speaker on the topic of Schizophrenia: Dr. Jack Blanchard

Title:  What can emotion and social behavior tell us about schizophrenia?

 

Abstract: 

Schizophrenia is characterized by disturbances in thought, perception, and behavior.  Although psychotic symptoms such as delusions and
hallucinations are hallmarks of the disorder, changes in emotion and
social behavior also occur.  This talk will address how alterations in hedonic capacity (the ability to experience pleasure) and impairments in social affiliation characterize schizophrenia. 
Findings from clinical assessment studies and laboratory investigations will be reviewed followed by a discussion of the clinical implications of these findings.
