Schizophrenia and Evoked Potentials

  • Enoch Callaway
Part of the The Downstate Series of Research in Psychiatry and Psychology book series (DSRPP, volume 2)


For the purposes of discussion, let me suggest that we have been approaching the problem of evoked potentials in schizophre nia completely the wrong way around. I can say such an outrageous thing, because all of us on this section of the program are members of the same family in more ways than one. If we hold to the biblical injunction that only who is without sin should cast the first stone, then I would be paralyzed. However, there is a new and different way of looking at this matter. I am not responsible for this new viewpoint, and while I am afraid I cannot give exact citations as to its origins, I can give an outline of what seems a more appropriate approach.
