Abstract

Thirteen treatment-refractory schizophrenic patients participated in a haloperidol reduction study. Two of the subjects were unable to tolerate medication reduction. These subjects were comparable to the other patients in terms of initial clinical variables but were outliers on baseline accuracy and reaction time measures from the Span of Apprehension. The results suggest that aspects of basic visual processing and motor response speed may identify patients who require higher neuroleptic doses.
