Abstract

Tested 32 psychiatric inpatients (approximate mean age 23 yrs) with a modification of C. Eriksen and J. Collins's visual pattern integration test (1967). Ss were divided into schizophrenic and nonschizophrenic groups and were compared with 20 hospital staff and 20 college students. The visual pattern integration functions of schizophrenics were found to be different from those of college students, but no other group differences were found. Among the inpatients, no correlations were found between visual pattern integration and premorbid adjustment, symptomatology, or various clinical/demographic factors. The one group difference appears to be the result of variables such as age and task motivation. It is concluded that icon-processing abnormalities, as represented by visual pattern integration deficits, cannot account for posticonic abnormalities found in schizophrenics.
