    Twenty-four patients with schizophrenia and 18 controls detected chasing in displays of moving disks. Compared to controls, patients had relatively higher hit rates for less direct compared to more direct chasing trials. Perceiving intent was generally intact in patients, despite the well-known difficulties with inferring intentional mental states in schizophrenia.
