Autism and Schizophrenia
Emerging study results suggest that there are both clinical and biological links between autism and schizophrenia. The question regarding whether there is phenotypic overlap or comorbidity between autism and schizophrenia dates back to 1943, when Kanner1 first used the term “autism” to describe egocentricity. The distinction between the two disorders remained unclear for nearly 30 years, until DSM-II included children with autism under the diagnostic umbrella ...

Shared clinical features
Although the disorders are distinct, they have shared clinical features.
SOCIAL WITHDRAWAL, COMMUNICATION IMPAIRMENT, and POOR EYE CONTACT
seen in ASD are similar to the negative symptoms seen in youths with schizophrenia.
11 When higher-functioning individuals with autism are stressed, they become highly anxious and at times may appear thought-disordered and paranoid, particularly when they are asked to shift set (such as being asked to change a topic of conversation or to stop an activity that they are engaged in and begin a new activity).

The Flat Affect in Schizophrenia
Flat affect, or impaired emotional functioning, is a SIGNATURE symptom of schizophrenia. It's a term used to describe the lack of emotional expression
which is a reduced intensity of emotional expression and responsiveness that leaves patients indifferent and apathetic. Typically, one sees unchanging facial expression, decreased spontaneous movements, poverty of expressive gestures,

Medical Definition of Anhedonia Anhedonia: Loss of the capacity to experience pleasure. The inability to gain pleasure from normally pleasurable
Transient, isolated, and mild mood disturbances are not infrequently seen in schizophrenia, with these changes tending toward elation, depression, or anxiety. A number of patients, during a partial remission of the psychotic symptoms, develop a full depressive syndrome, the so-called “post-psychotic depression” of schizophrenia.

Eye-contact perception in schizophrenia: relationship with symptoms and socioemotional functioning.

Accurately perceiving self-referential social signals, particularly eye contact, is critical to social adaptation.
Schizophrenia is often accompanied by deficits in social cognition, but it is unclear whether this includes gaze discrimination deficits.
This study investigated whether eye-contact perception is preserved or impaired and if it is related to symptoms and broader socioemotional functioning in schizophrenia.
Twenty-six participants with schizophrenia (SCZ) and 23 healthy controls (HC) made eye-contact judgments for faces in varying gaze direction (from averted to direct in ten 10% increments), head orientation (forward, 30° averted), and emotion (neutral, fearful).
Psychophysical analyses for forward faces showed that SCZ began endorsing eye contact with
weaker eye-contact signal
and their eye-contact perception was less of a dichotomous function, as compared with HC. SCZ were more likely than HC to endorse eye contact when gaze was ambiguous, and this overperception of eye contact was modulated by head orientation and emotion. Overperception of eye contact was associated with more severe negative symptoms.
Decreased categorical gaze perception explained variance of socioemotional deficits in schizophrenia
after taking basic neurocognition into consideration, suggesting the relationship was not solely due to a general deficit problem. These results were discussed in relation to the nature of categorical gaze perception and its significance to clinical and functional presentations of schizophrenia.
