Abstract

Manic, schizophrenic, and normal subjects were interviewed in the presence and absence of distracting information, and their speech performance was evaluated. Normal and manic subjects were unaffected by irrelevant information. Schizophrenic subjects manifested more reference failures during distraction than during nondistraction periods.
