“In schizophrenia, we’re actually finding that networks reconfigure more quickly than they potentially should.”
This looks like more theorizing along the lines of the ‘hyperlearning’ theory of psychosis.
Or, maybe even the aberrant salience theory.
This also partly explains the memory issues for sz. Because of the multitude and variety of thoughts, no one thought or one item is important. Everything is instead partly passive, and more of an emergency. Unless attached(in memory) to other items that are consistent in thought, they will be lost.
Also, because of the reconfigured networks, paradigm shifts, etc…memories that were once attached become unattached as the previous paradigm(s), and branching thoughts, are lost.
