Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

Schizophrenia is commonly understood as a mental illness, but a growing body of evidence indicates that it is a complex neurological condition that profoundly impacts motor performance and learning. Thus, functional skills and participation are significantly affected. This scoping review aims to understand motor-learning processes in adults with schizophrenia with the goal of expanding our ability to support functional skill development in this population.
