Background. The relationship between cognitive function and symptomatology in bipolar disorder is unclear. This study assessed executive function during the manic, depressed and remitted stages of bipolar I disorder. Method. Tasks assessing phonological and semantic verbal fluency, the Hayling Sentence Completion Test, the Stroop Neuropsychological Screening Test and the Cognitive Estimates Test were administered to manic (n=15), depressed (n=15), and remitted (n=15) bipolar I patients, and to… Expand
Cognitive functioning in depression period of bipolar disorder
TLDR
In patients with bipolar depression cognitive assessment should be taken into account in the diagnosis and the disturbances in executive functions and working memory should be treated with neuropsychological rehabilitation and / or pharmacotherapy. Expand
Insight, symptoms and neurocognition in bipolar I patients.
TLDR
The hypothesis that impaired insight and other neurocognitive dysfunctions were present in a large percentage of cases among symptomatic as well as remitted bipolar patients is supported. Expand
Stability and course of neuropsychological deficits in manic and depressed bipolar patients compared to patients with Major Depression.
TLDR
This study provides further evidence for distinct neuropsychological functioning in patients with affective disorders depending on their state of illness and supports the hypothesis that especially manic bipolar patients stay impaired in certain cognitive functions after remission. Expand
Functional outcome in bipolar disorder: the role of clinical and cognitive factors.
TLDR
Low-functioning patients were cognitively more impaired than highly functioning patients on verbal recall and executive functions and the variable that best predicted psychosocial functioning in bipolar patients was verbal memory. Expand
A meta-analysis of cognitive deficits in euthymic patients with bipolar disorder.
TLDR
Euthymic bipolar patients demonstrate relatively marked impairment in aspects of executive function and verbal memory, and it is not yet clear whether these are two discrete areas of impairment or are related to one another. Expand
Evaluation of cognitive function in bipolar disorder using the Brief Assessment of Cognition in Affective Disorders (BAC-A).
TLDR
The results of this study are consistent with previous reports of verbal memory and verbal fluency impairment in bipolar disorder, and could be used to estimate global functioning in BD patients. Expand
Verbal fluency dysfunction in euthymic bipolar patients: a controlled study.
TLDR
Patients who showed deficits in information processing speed and inhibitory control had more episodes and hospitalizations and lifetime occurrence of psychotic symptoms and only verbal fluency tests differentiated bipolar euthymic patients from healthy controls. Expand
Relationship of neurocognitive deficits to diagnosis and symptoms across affective and non-affective psychoses
TLDR
As neurocognitive dysfunction is among the strongest predictors of outcome in patients, efforts to treat these deficits, which have shown promise in schizophrenia, should be extended to all patients with psychosis. Expand
Examination and Comparison of Cognitive and Executive Functions in Clinically Stable Schizophrenia Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, and Major Depressive Disorder
TLDR
Patients with SC, BD, and MDD have poorer cognitive and executive functions than healthy individuals, even when these patients are in a stable state. Expand
[The role and importance of cognitive symptoms in bipolar disorder].
TLDR
Evidence of the role of cognitive deficits in bipolar disorder and their relationship to other factors, such as disorder variables, treatment, additional diagnoses, genetic risk, and brain imaging findings are reviewed. Expand

Neuropsychological function in euthymic patients with bipolar disorder.
TLDR
Findings provide good evidence for the existence of neuropsychological impairment in patients with euthymic bipolar disorder, although the possible effect of medication should not be overlooked. Expand
Cognitive impairment in remission in bipolar affective disorder
TLDR
It is demonstrated that patients in remission show a relatively specific impairment in memory with recovery of accuracy measures on executive function task, suggesting that in neuroanatomical terms, more posterior cortical function (temporal lobe) has not improved but there is at least some recovery of frontal lobe function in remission. Expand
Cognitive function in euthymic Bipolar I Disorder
TLDR
Euthymic BDI patients demonstrate reductions in specific cognitive domains even after prolonged asymptomatic phases, some of these deficits appear to be associated with a more severe course of illness and poorer social and occupational functioning. Expand
Contrasts between patients with affective disorders and patients with schizophrenia on a neuropsychological test battery.
TLDR
It is suggested that patients with schizophrenia perform systematically worse on cognitive measures than patients with affective disorders, which is consistent with their generally poorer outcome. Expand
Sustained attention deficit in bipolar disorder.
TLDR
Sustained attention deficit may represent a neuropsychological vulnerability marker for bipolar disorder, providing a focus for further understanding of the phenotype and analysis of the neuronal networks involved. Expand
Persistent attentional dysfunction in remitted bipolar disorder.
TLDR
The findings suggest that impairments in fine motor skills and reaction time may be present in clinically stable patients with BPD, even after accounting for psychiatric symptoms and medication effects. Expand

TLDR
Memory deficits are the most discriminatory cognitive features betweenSubjects with schizophrenia and those with other psychotic or mood disorders and the fact that cognitive deficits are static whatever the diagnostic group indirectly suggests that they may have a neurodevelopmental origin in subjects with schizophrenia, but perhaps also in subjectsWith other psychotic and mood disorders.

TLDR
Methodological limitations warrant further research in order to clear up the relationship between neuropsychological functioning and clinical, demographic and treatment variables in bipolar disorder. Expand
Neuropsychologic impairments in bipolar and unipolar mood disorders on the CANTAB neurocognitive battery
TLDR
Neuropsychologic findings with the Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery indicate widely distributed deficits in cognitive domains subserved by temporal, parietal, and frontostriatal systems in bipolar patients during mixed/manic states of illness. Expand

TLDR
Impaired verbal learning and memory may be a trait variable in bipolar disease and implications for adherence to medication and relapse and for the role of early treatment interventions are explored. Expand
