Knowledge about SC (social cognition) during remission would inform us whether such deficits are trait- or state-markers of the disorder, as well as highlight its relevance for rehabilitation. We aimed to compare SC deficits and their relative independence from NC (neuro-cognition) deficits in remitted schizophrenia patients and matched health controls using comprehensive, culturally sensitive standardized tools. 60 schizophrenia patients meeting modified standardized criteria for remission and 60 age, gender and education matched healthy controls were compared on culturally validated tests of SC—Social Cognition Rating Tool in Indian Setting (SOCRATIS) & Tool for Recognition of Emotions in Neuropsychiatric Disorders (TRENDS) to assess theory of mind, attributional bias, social perception and emotion recognition and NC—(attention/vigilance, speed of processing, visual and verbal learning, working memory and executive functions). Patients had deficits in both SC and NC compared to healthy controls. Deficits in SC were largely independent of NC performance, and SC deficits persisted after adjusting for deficits in NC function. The effect sizes (Cohen's d) for SC deficits ranged from 0.37 to 2.23. All patients scored below a defined cut-off in at least one SC domain. SC deficits are likely to be state-independent in schizophrenia, as they are present in remission phase of the illness. This supports their status as a possible composite-endophenotype in schizophrenia.
