Journal Article
Antonova, E., Amaratunga, K., Wright, B., Ettinger, U., & Kumari, V. (2016). Schizotypy and mindfulness: Magical thinking without suspiciousness characterizes mindfulness meditators. Schizophrenia Research: Cognition, 5, 1-6. doi:10.1016/j.scog.2016.05.001

Despite growing evidence for demonstrated efficacy of mindfulness in various disorders, there is a continuous concern about the relationship between mindfulness practice and psychosis. As schizotypy is part of the psychosis spectrum, we examined the... Read More about Schizotypy and mindfulness: Magical thinking without suspiciousness characterizes mindfulness meditators.

Moderators of noise-induced cognitive change in healthy adults (2016)
Journal Article
Wright, B. A., Peters, E. R., Ettinger, U., Kuipers, E., & Kumari, V. (2016). Moderators of noise-induced cognitive change in healthy adults. Noise & health, 18(82), 117-132. doi:10.4103/1463-1741.181995

Environmental noise causes cognitive impairment, particularly in executive function and episodic memory domains, in healthy populations. However, the possible moderating influences on this relationship are less clear. This study assessed 54 healthy p... Read More about Moderators of noise-induced cognitive change in healthy adults.

Effects of environmental noise on cognitive (dys)functions in schizophrenia: A pilot within-subjects experimental study (2016)
Journal Article
Wright, B., Peters, E., Ettinger, U., Kuipers, E., & Kumari, V. (2016). Effects of environmental noise on cognitive (dys)functions in schizophrenia: A pilot within-subjects experimental study. Schizophrenia research, 173(1-2), 101-108. doi:10.1016/j.schres.2016.03.017

Cognitive impairment, particularly in attention, memory and executive function domains, is commonly present and associated with poor functional outcomes in schizophrenia. In healthy adults, environmental noise adversely affects many cognitive domains...

Understanding noise stress-induced cognitive impairment in healthy adults and its implications for schizophrenia (2014)
Journal Article
Wright, B., Peters, E., Ettinger, U., Kuipers, E., & Kumari, V. (2014). Understanding noise stress-induced cognitive impairment in healthy adults and its implications for schizophrenia. Noise & health, 16(70), 166-176. doi:10.4103/1463-1741.134917

Noise stress (NS) is detrimental to many aspects of human health and behavior. Understanding the effect of noise stressors on human cognitive function is a growing area of research and is crucial to helping clinical populations, such as those with sc...

Visual surround suppression in schizophrenia (2013)
Journal Article
Tibber, M. S., Anderson, E. J., Bobin, T., Antonova, E., Seabright, A., Wright, B., …Dakin, S. C. (2013). Visual surround suppression in schizophrenia. Frontiers in Psychology, 4(FEB), doi:10.3389/fpsyg.2013.00088

Compared to unaffected observers patients with schizophrenia (SZ) show characteristic differences in visual perception, including a reduced susceptibility to the influence of context on judgments of contrast – a manifestation of weaker surround suppr...
