Schizophrenic patients often remain symptomatic with predominant (or persistent) negative symptoms (PNS) despite receiving antipsychotic therapy. Negative symptoms might include social withdrawal, poverty of speech, apathy, inability to experience pleasure, limited emotional expression, or defects in attention control. Several definitions of PNS exist. The purpose of this study is to describe PNS population according to several definitions.
