Abstract

This study relates violent behavior of schizophrenic inpatients to demographic, historical, EEG, neurological, and neuropsychological variables. Patients were classified into high (N = 28), low (N = 27), or no (N = 34) violence groups. There were no significant differences among the groups on demographic or historical variables, except for prevalence of violent crime, which was higher in both violent groups than in nonviolent patients. Neurological and neuropsychological abnormalities differentiated the groups, with the high violence group evidencing more abnormalities than the other two groups in the area of integrative sensory and motor functions. The authors suggest that violence as well as neurological and neuropsychological deficits may characterize a more severe form of schizophrenia.
