*Abstract*
One of schizophrenia’s core symptoms, negative symptoms have been some how neglected in research over half of a century. But this is quickly changing with the advent of novel scales and theoretical models and promising treatments in the pipeline. In his talk, we will present the historical and conceptual issues with the term to then introduce our work in the characterisation and pathophysiology of negative symptom.
