The negative symptoms of schizophrenia are so-named because they are considered to be the loss or absence of normal traits or abilities, and include features such as:
- flat or blunted affect and emotion,
- poverty of speech (alogia),
- anhedonia, and
- lack of motivation (avolition).
Despite the appearance of blunted affect, recent studies indicate that there is often a normal or even heightened level of emotionality in Schizophrenia especially in response to stressful or negative events.
