The construct of social cognition provides a perspective on how people process information within social contexts. Social brain evolution is an adaptive response to the increasingly complex social environment. Social cognitive deficits in patients with schizophrenia determine functional outcome. Social cognitive deficits in schizophrenia could serve as targets for novel treatment applications. Culturally validated tools to measure these deficits in the Indian setting have been developed. Social cognitive training has promise in this regard.
