If resources were not limited, what research projects would you pursue?
- Development of cognitive rehabilitation technics in schizophrenia

- Exploration of the functioning of episodic memory in schizophrenia

- neuroimaging of memory function in schizophrenia
What is your leading hypothesis?
Difficulty with associative processes is the central problem underlying episodic memory deficits in schizophrenia.
What piece of missing evidence would help prove it?
Extensive testing of associative memory under various conditions (incidental and intentional encoding, different types of associations).
What is your fallback position?
Associative memory difficulty in schizophrenia may also be related to executive problems, leading to a deficit with strategic processing in memory.
