Abstract: The ability of patients with schizophrenia to recognize itself has been a controversial issue. To explore schizophrenics' ability of self-face recognition and the influence of self-face on their voice identity recognition in audiovisual integration. Thirty-five patients with schizophrenia and 29 healthy participants were selected to complete a single- modality dynamic self-face recognition task and an audiovisual integration task of 2(group: schizophrenia group, healthy group) × 3(voice identity: self, others of the same sex, others of the opposite sex) in self-face condition. Results show:there was no significant difference between the single-modality self-face recognition ability and self-voice recognition ability of patients with schizophrenia and healthy participants (p >0.05), but in the audiovisual integration task, the voice recognition of patients with schizophrenia was affected by the self-face (p < 0.05). It is found that patients with schizophrenia have the ability of self-face recognition and self-voice recognition. In the overall audiovisual task, self-face would promote self-voice recognition, and inhibited the recognition of other voices of the same and opposite sex.
