Abnormalities in the ability to distinguish events in time may have a great impact on everyday life. The main objective of the study is to evaluate the magnitude of the temporal windows in schizophrenia, i.e. the time interval during which two events are perceived as synchronous. The investigators test the hypothesis that these temporal windows are enlarged, and check the relationship between this impairment and disorganization symptoms, in order to explore the link between this cognitive impairment and clinical symptoms. They explore also the neurobiological bases of the impairment by means of electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings. Event-related potentials (N50) will reveal whether or not the coding of the stimuli has the same temporal characteristics in patients and controls. The distribution and amplitude of oscillatory activities will be analyzed as a function of the synchronous or asynchronous response of the subject, thus allowing to explore the links between synchrony perception and neuronal synchronization phenomena.

A chronic form of schizophrenia characterized primarily by the presence of persecutory or grandiose delusions, often associated with hallucination.
A type of schizophrenia characterized by abnormality of motor behavior which may involve particular forms of stupor, rigidity, excitement or inappropriate posture.
An obsolete concept, historically used for childhood mental disorders thought to be a form of schizophrenia.
A type of schizophrenia characterized by frequent incoherence; marked loosening of associations, or grossly disorganized behavior and flat or grossly inappropriate affect that does not meet the criteria for the catatonic type; associated features include extreme social withdrawal, grimacing, mannerisms, mirror gazing, inappropriate giggling, and other odd behavior.
