Psychology, Medicine
Front. Hum. Neurosci.
2014
TLDR
Patients with paranoid schizophrenia were as accurate as controls in comprehending literal and idiomatic sentences, but they were overall slower than controls in all conditions, suggesting that the state of residual schizophrenia did not contribute to slower processing of sensible idioms above and beyond the cognitive deficits that are typically associated with schizophrenia.
