MMN大老Risto Näätänen兩篇關於MMN的breakthrough文章

2014年,MMN大老芬蘭籍的Risto Näätänen與日本的Yabe發表於International Journal of psychophysiology: official journal of the International Organization of Psychophysiology(IF=3.05)之文章Mismatch negativity (MMN) deficiency: A break-through biomarker in predicting psychosis onset.


The MMN deficit is one of the most robust findings in schizophrenia.

Schizophrenia patients have deficits in the duration MMN in the early course.

Alterations in the MMN at risk-mental state may predict conversion to psychosis.

An important break-through has very recently taken place here in the prediction of conversion to psychosis when the MMN in particular to change in tone duration was recorded in clinically at risk-mental state (ARMS) individuals. Attenuations in the MMN in these patients may be very useful in helping clinicians determine who are most likely to develop a psychotic disorder, as we will review in the present article.
