Individuals suffering from schizophrenia sometimes hold the promise of a bleak future. There are added concerns of suicides and severe disruption in all spheres of life ranging from education to personal relationships. Schizophrenia covers a vast array of symptoms and dysfunctions namely attentional dysfunctions, dysfunction of the processing speed and executive control, emotional processing dysfunctions, hallucinations and reduced insight. The purpose of this paper is to understand the neurocognitive components behind the symptoms of schizophrenia. The elucidation of clear paradigms on the cause of their maladjustments can help in the formulation of an effective cognitive remediation programme which cognitive neuropsychology tries to answer.
