Conclusion

In this survey of the Soviet contributions to the study of the cognitive aspects in schizophrenia, we have discussed the traditional interest in visual forms, mimicry, emotional vocalization, hallucinations, and neologisms. Today the emphasis in the Moscow school is on the basic cognitive problem in schizophrenia (“probability prognosis”), while in the Leningrad school, the emphasis is on precise evaluation of communicative abilities (or defects) via various channels. The importance of the Leningrad school is in the implementation of the neuropsychologic and neurophysiologic approach as has been shown in reviewing investigations related to localization and hemispheric specialization in cognitive processing (Balonov and Deglin 1976, Tonkonogy 1973, Balonovet al, 1979). A comparison of the results of these studies with research done in Western countries would be highly desirable.
