It rings true: Neural markers of intuition and conviction in psychosis

2022 – Flinders University

Researchers: Lead Investigator – Dr Oren Griffiths, Co-Investigator: Dr Ryan Balzan

Priority Area: Psychosis

Overview: Researchers have identified numerous potential biomarkers in people with schizophrenia, but there is a weak linkage with clinical symptoms. Conversely, clinical researchers have identified cognitive biases that plausibly maintain clinical symptoms, but their methods typically have reduced objectivity. The project bridges these two traditions to examine whether a core process targeted by metacognitive therapy is disrupted in people with schizophrenia.
