The purpose of this chapter is to describe someareas of social cognition research conducted by social psychologists, primarily using normal adults, with an eye toward providing insights that may be valuableto schizophrenia researchers. It discusses differing definitions for social cognition, research on attribution biases, emotion processing, social perception, and theory of mind (ToM), and suggests that, even within these topics, other phenomena studied by social psychologists in greater depth also may be usefully examined by schizophrenia researchers.
