1)Schizophrenia has many symptoms show disrupted cognition (incoherent speech, confused thoughts)
2)Cognitive approach can't explain the causes but can offer insight in how to treat it
3)Attention filters do not work properly in schizophrenics. We use filters to lessen the number of stimuli in the world that it becomes confusing (give e.g)
4)Stroop effect - show words in different colours - schizophrenics took longer on the test as attention filters weren't working, found it more difficult.
