Description of the research topic:

Mentalization is the ability to attribute mental states (intentions, desires, beliefs, emotions) to others and oneself. The prerequisite of the development of the mentalization skills is the appropriate maturational process of the nervous system. It is generally accepted that neurodevelopmental abnormalities are present in schizophrenia resulting in marked neurocognitive deficits, which in turn may significantly affect the mentalization skills. The aim of the PhD work is to assess the neurocognitive deficits in schizophrenia, and their effect on mentalizing skills.
