This article is dedicated to the research of the susceptibility to the Ponzo and Poggendorff illusion at persons in the initial stage of schizophrenia during remission. It is established that mentally healthy examinees are less sensitive to the Ponzo illusion than patients with schizophrenia. At presentation of images of Poggendorff figure, distinctions in propensity to occurrence of the given illusion are not revealed. Results of the present research have practical value for the development of methods of diagnosis of the condition of perception-cognitive processes in persons with schizophrenia.

Keywords: vision, schizophrenia, Ponzo illusion, length of pieces, position in space, Poggendorff illusion

Column: Psychology of Perception
