Eyes Reveal Reading Trouble in Schizophrenia, McGill University Study
Published: Feb 20, 2013
By examining eye movements, researchers have found that people with schizophrenia read differently and with more difficulty. The findings could lead to earlier detection and intervention for people with the illness. While schizophrenia patients are known to have abnormalities in language and in eye movements, until recently reading ability was believed to be unaffected. That is because most previous studies examined reading in schizophrenia using single-word reading tests, the researchers conclude.
