A review on shared clinical and molecular mechanisms between bipolar disorder and frontotemporal dementia
Belief updating in bipolar disorder predicts time of recurrence
It is found that reduced tendency to update beliefs in response to positive relative to negative information predicted earlier relapse, suggesting that measuring valence-dependent belief updating could facilitate risk prediction in bipolar disorder.
Neurobiology of bipolar disorders: a review of genetic components, signaling pathways, biochemical changes, and neuroimaging findings
Genetic, epigenetic, molecular, physiological, clinical, environmental data, and neuroimaging findings associated with the neurobiology of bipolar disorder are discussed.
Symptom continuum reported by affective disorder patients through a structure-validated questionnaire
Patients confirmed the affective continuum from Suicide Tendency to Overactivation, and described the different loci of MDD, BD I and BD II on this continuum.

Genetics of bipolar disorder.
Prevalence and characteristics of undiagnosed bipolar disorders in patients with a major depressive episode: the BRIDGE study.
Family history, illness course, and clinical status, in addition to DSM-IV-TR criteria, may provide useful information for physicians when assessing evidence of bipolarity in patients with major depressive episodes, and is recommended before deciding on treatment.
Patterns of pharmacological maintenance treatment in a community mental health services bipolar disorder cohort study (SIN-DEPRES).
Clinical factors closely related to prescription patterns are revealed, except for the excessive use of antidepressants, in a cohort of 739 out-patients with clinically stable BD.

Findings from key longitudinal high risk studies starting with well characterized affected parents support an evolution of psychopathology from non-specific disorders to frank bipolarity and highlight the importance of considering the clinical course and the family history in diagnostic formulation in pediatric patients early in the course of a psychiatric illness.
Axis I psychiatric comorbidity and its relationship to historical illness variables in 288 patients with bipolar disorder.
Comorbid lifetime and current axis I disorders in 288 patients with bipolar disorder and the relationships of these comorbid disorders to selected demographic and historical illness variables showed associations with earlier age at onset of affective symptoms and syndromal bipolar disorder.
Bipolar II disorder: arguments for and against a distinct diagnostic entity.
Bipolar II disorder is supported as a distinct category within mood disorders, but the definition and boundaries deserve a greater clarification in the DSM-V and ICD-11.
