The results of our new publication on “Increased Belief Instability in Psychotic Disorders Predicts Treatment Response to Metacognitive Training” (Hauke et al., 2022) in Schizophrenia Bulletin point towards increased belief instability as a key computational mechanism underlying probabilistic reasoning in psychotic disorders. The study also provides a proof-of-concept that this computational approach may be useful to help identify suitable treatments for individual patients with psychotic disorders.
