Cognitive dysfunctions often occur long before the onset of psychotic symptoms of schizophrenia. They include mostly deficits in attention, memory (including working memory) and executive functions. The level of cognitive impairment strongly influences the subjective quality of life and the ability to perform in social and professional roles. Therefore(More)
AIM The assessment of cognitive impairment in schizophrenia proves helpful in the diagnosis of disease, identification of individuals at risk for adverse outcome and choosing the most adequate treatment. It is also a valuable complement of the psychiatric diagnosis. For this reason, there is a great need for a practical well-validated instrument to measure(More)
OBJECTIVES MATRICS Consensus Cognitive Battery (MCCB) is a contemporary standard for assessment of cognitive functions in schizophrenia. The aim of the study was to examine the association between electroencephalographic spectral power and a wide range of cognitive functions measured with MCCB. METHODS Thirty-nine patients with schizophrenia (27 male,(More)
In schizophrenia patients, both an older age and earlier age at onset of the disease are related to worse cognitive functioning. As patients with later schizophrenia onset are also older, analysing the two effects separately can be misleading, as they can either be spurious or cancel one another out. The purpose of the present study was to elucidate the(More)

MEOS consists of six dimensions: mood enhancing (Enhance), mood worsening (Worsen), concealing emotions from others (Conceal), use of inauthentic displays for self-serving purposes (Inauthentic), poor emotion skills (Poor(More)
