Apparent compensation mechanisms in relatives of schizophrenia patients in visual backward masking

Visual backward masking (VBM) is strongly deteriorated in schizophrenia patients. VBM is a potential endophenotype of schizophrenia reflecting the genetic underpinnings of the disease (Chkonia et al., 2010). Masking deficits are highly correlated with reduced N1 amplitudes as shown by the Global Field Power (GFP; Plomp et al., 2013). Here, we investigated the electrophysiological correlates of VBM in first-order relatives of schizophrenia patients.
