GARCIA-ALVAREZ, Leticia et al. Face recognition in schizotypy. Anal. Psicol. [online]. 2013, vol.29, n.3, pp.791-799. ISSN 1695-2294.

Studies suggest disturbances of self in schizophrenia and in schizotypy, and unusual perception of own and other faces in schizotypy. The purpose of this study was to explore possible differences between high and low scores on schizotypal questionnaires and self and others-face recognition, and confirm whether the cognitive-perceptual and disorganization dimensions of schizotypy, but not the interpersonal dimension, significantly correlated with such disturbances, as observed in previous studies. A sample of 219 nonclinical adolescent and young subjects (53% females) completed the Self-Face Recognition Questionnaire (SFRQ), the Schizotypal Personality Questionnaire-Brief (SPQ-B), and the Oviedo Schizotypy Assessment Questionnaire (ESQUIZO-Q). Mean age of the participants was 16.3 years (SD = 1.18). Comparisons between those participants scoring high and low in schizotypal traits offer further support that positive (Cognitive-perceptual and Disorganization) traits significantly correlate with face recognition difficulties; demonstrating girls more disturbances than boys in face recognition, probably due to higher scores in the Cognitive-perceptive dimension.

Keywords : Face recognition; schizotypy; adolescence; self disorders.
