The Diametrics of Personal Space: Autism vs. Schizophrenia

In the two previous posts I elaborated the idea of intra-psychic mentalism, meaning your ability to read your own mind and sense your own reactions and emotions. But now a remarkable new review explores, not how you sense your internal self, but how you sense yourself externally in the space around you: what the authors call peripersonal space (PPS, left).

How would this explain people who are both autistic and schizophrenic?
