We recorded magnetoencephalographic auditory steady state responses (SSR) from eight schizoaffective (SAD) subjects and compared the resulting data with previously published findings in persons with schizophrenia (SZ) and controls. SAD subjects exhibited SSR responses similar to controls in the left hemisphere and greater than controls in the right hemisphere, whereas SZ subjects exhibited deficits in both amplitude and phase control in both hemispheres. Our findings suggest preservation of GABAergic inhibitory interneuronal control of layer 3 pyramidal cell activity in primary auditory cortex in SAD. © 2010 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.
