Abstract

Schizophrenia appears quite similar across a range of cultures. However, variability has been noted, and understanding the variant and invariant features of the disorder is necessary for elucidating its biological and environmental basis. Evidence of prominent emotion processing deficits in schizophrenia, including perceptual and experiential aspects, led us to extend theparadigm of standardized measures cross-culturally. We assessed performance of American, German, and Indian patients with schizophrenia and healthy controls on standardized emotion discrimination and experience (mood induction) procedures using happy, sad, and neutral facial expressions of Caucasian actors. Participants were 80 Americans (40 patients; 40 controls), 48 Germans (24 patients; 24 controls), and 58 Indians (29 patients; 29 controls). Face discrimination performance was impaired across patient groups, but was most impaired in those of Indian origin. Lower performance was also foundin Indian controls, relative to their American and German counterparts. Mood induction produced weaker effects in all patient groups relative to their respective controls. The results supported the feasibility of cross-cultural comparisons and also emphasized the importance of poser ethnic background for facial affect identification, while poser ethnicity was less consequential for mood induction effects. Emotion processing deficits in schizophrenia may add to the clinical burden, and merit further examination. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
