Abstract

Negative symptoms remain poorly understood and treated despite their huge impact on patients' lives and clinical outcomes. This is partly because of ongoing debates about the clinical constructs underlying negative symptoms. A longitudinal analysis of the structure of negative symptoms presented in BJPsych Open reports striking temporal stability of symptom structure, which behaves as a few independent domains. This further underscores the need to address specific symptom domains when considering interventions or pathophysiology studies.
