Predictive Pursuit Association with Deficits in Working Memory in Psychosis
Biological Psychiatry, 05/09/2012
Moates AF et al. – Individuals with schizophrenia and psychotic bipolar disorder showed similar deficits in predictive pursuit, suggesting that this alteration could be a characteristic trait of the psychosis domain. The correlation between predictive pursuit and working memory in healthy control subjects supports the assumption that working memory is related to predictive pursuit eye movements; however, the degradation of working memory in people with psychosis disrupts its association with eye–tracking behavior.
