Abstract

Although several theories of delusions have been put forward, most do not offer a comprehensive diagnosis-independent explanation of delusion aetiology. This study used a non-clinical sample to provide empirical support for a novel transdiagnostic model of delusions that implicates aberrant semantic memory and emotion perception processes as key factors in delusion formation and maintenance. It was hypothesised that among a non-clinical sample, people high in schizotypy would demonstrate differences in semantic memory and emotion perception, relative to people low in schizotypy.
