Social cognition encompasses the processing of affective and cognitive mental states of self and other. A number of psychopathologies have now been linked to abnormalities of social cognition prompting questions about interactions and dissociations within the sociocognitive domain and highlighting gaps in the literature. This symposium begins with an overview of historical beginnings, theoretical accounts and questions concerning neural underpinnings. Individual speakers will then focus on different psychopathologies to present reviews and some new empirical data to address unresolved issues, highlight new directions and offer cautionary notes concerning the conduct of social cognition research in clinical populations.
