10/11/2019: Modifications of social attention and perception in mental disorders / Dr. Oren Bader, Universitätsklinikum Heidelberg

October 29, 2019

Mental disorders often involve modifications in the way subjects attend to and
perceive other people. However, the nature of these changes and the way they unfold
in different types of pathologies are not sufficiently clear. This talk addresses these
issues from the perspective of phenomenological psychopathology. The primary goal
is to suggest a new way of distinguishing the oscillations of social attention in subjects
with mental disorders. This will be done by characterizing the experiential and
cognitive properties of a fully intact capacity for social attention. This model is then
used to typify alterations of social attention and perception in autism, schizophrenia,
borderline personality disorder, and social anxiety disorder.
