Cognitive biases and psychosis: From bench to bedside

Ryan P. Balzan, Steffen Moritz

Research output: Contribution to journalLetterpeer-review


Schizophrenia—the prototype diagnosis of primary psychosis—has long been viewed as a bizarre and inexplicable condition. Historically, research has tended to investigate the condition through the lens of ‘impairment’ or ‘deficits’, which continues to the present day (O'Reilly et al., 2020), despite evidence that the neurocognitive deficits in primary psychosis are not uniformly present (Beck et al., 2018; Moritz et al., 2020). This deficit-view may also unintentionally have contributed to the stigma associated with the condition.
