Étude du lien entre mémoire autobiographique et traits schizotypiques en population non clinique

Abstract : This study aims to explore the link between autobiographical memory (AM) and schizotypal traits in general population from a dimensional perspective. As literature tends to highlight the existence of a continuum of schizophrenic disorders, the idea is to probe the extent to which this notion is expressed in neurocognitive processes such as AM. For this, 53 participants answered an online LimeSurvey questionnaire consisting of the SPQ (Schizotypal Personality Questionnaire) and a questionnaire assessing autobiographical memories. The results indicate significant correlations between the number of perceptual details and the scores for the Cognitive Perceptive (R = 0.276; p <.05) and Interpersonal (R = 0.347; p <.05) factors, as well as with the total score in SPQ (R = 0.303; p <.05). A significant correlation is also demonstrated between the number of thoughts reported and the Cognitive Perceptive factor score (R = 0.351; p <.05), and with the total score on SPQ (R = 0.327; p <.05). Finally, a significant link is observed between emotional valence of memory and the Interpersonal factor (R = -0.329; p <.05). Highlight specificities of AM among people with high schizotypal traits supports the continuum hypothesis by identifying characteristics that are distinct both from general population, but also from those present in clinical population.
