Attenuated Psychosis Syndrome
Resources for Patients and Caregivers
The DSM-5 has listed attenuated psychosis syndrome (APS) as a “condition for future study.” APS can involve mild delusions, hallucinations, and disorganized speech, with relatively intact reality testing in the absence of a clear psychotic disorder, and has been thought to be a risk state for later schizophrenia
Wiki Number: 07-Attenuated Psychosis Syndrome

- Relationships between self-reflectiveness and clinical symptoms in individuals during pre-morbid and early clinical stages of psychosisby Lihua Xu on June 20, 2022
CONCLUSIONS: Self-reflectiveness demonstrates complex relationships with clinical symptoms and fails to exert significant positive effects when reaching a certain high level.
- Dynamic networks of psychological symptoms, impairment, substance use, and social support: The evolution of psychopathology among emerging adultsby Jacob J Crouse on June 13, 2022
CONCLUSIONS: These probabilistic models identify symptoms and personal/lifestyle factors that might prove useful targets for indicated preventative strategies.
- Associations between symptom and neurocognitive dimensions in clinical high risk for psychosisby Ingvild Aase on June 9, 2022
CONCLUSION: In line with previous research, data indicated associations between positive symptoms and poorer executive functioning. Negative symptoms may not be related to executive functions in CHR the same way as in psychosis. Our results could indicate that attenuated positive symptoms are more related to cognitive deficits in CHR than positive symptoms in schizophrenia and FEP.
- White matter microstructure and the clinical risk for psychosis: A diffusion tensor imaging study of individuals with basic symptoms and at ultra-high riskby Lukasz Smigielski on June 9, 2022
CONCLUSIONS: These findings align with the subclinical symptom presentation and more extensive disruptions in converters, suggestive of severity-related demyelination or axonal pathology. Fine-grained but detectable differences among ultra-high-risk subjects (i.e., with brief limited intermittent and/or attenuated psychotic symptoms) point to the splenium as a discrete site of emerging psychopathology, while basic symptoms alone were not associated with altered fractional anisotropy.
