The ecoval study

The aim of the ecoval study is to link social processes across explanatory levels in an effort to identify the neural signature of the social deficits in schizophrenia.

Schizophrenia manifests itself in anomalous social processes across different levels, spanning from an impaired ability to relate to others, to difficulties with interpreting the emotions and mental states of others, and aberrant neural processes of the social brain.

The ecoval study uses standard assessments of social cognition, neurocognition, clinical symptoms and functioning in combination with electrophysiological measures of brain activity (EEG, ERP) and real-world assessments of social behavior using video-ethnography.
