Objective:  Evidence related to overlapping clinical and genetic risk factors in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder (BD) have raised concerns about the validity of ‘Kraepelinian dichotomy’. As controversies mainly arise in mixed psychoses that occupy the intermediate zone between schizophrenia and BD, investigating neurobiological markers of mixed psychoses may be relevant to understanding the nature of psychotic disorders. 
The Schizophrenia Construct After 100 Years of Challenges
TLDR
A new concept for functional psychoses is needed in order to develop a new classification for research purposes, and molecular genetic studies using a number of candidate genes and endophenotypes with measured symptom dimensions and patterns are conducted.
Psychosis continuum and neurocognition in bipolar disorder.
  • E. Bora, M. Berk

TLDR
The rather modest effects of a history of psychosis on cognitive functioning in bipolar disorder contradict the genetic and familial findings, which indicate a substantial overlap of schizophrenia with psychotic mood disorders, but not with non-psychotic mood disorders.

Psychobiologic evidence and psychosocial functioning in patients with schizoaffective disorder suggest that the disease may be a distinct disorder, a variant of schizophrenia or affective disorders,
Cognitive impairment in affective psychoses: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
The pattern of cognitive impairments in AP was similar to reported findings in euthymic patients with BD, but relatively more pronounced, and the largest effect size was found for symbol coding, stroop task, verbal learning, and category fluency.

Ayurvedic Treatment of Bipolar Disorder
TLDR
After clinical trials of vitamin B complex and methylfolate on bipolar disorder patients, it proved these are useful in physical illness and it more effective with other herbal drugs.

TLDR
The schizophrenia spectrum disorders are a group of psychiatric diagnoses that share several clinical features, typically involving reality distortion, and are characterised by significant heterogeneity of signs and symptoms, disease course and outcome.

TLDR
Although a substantial body of evidence suggests that cycloid psychosis differs meaningfully from typical schizophrenia, it is less clear whether it differs from major mood disorders or represents an independent nosological entity.

Insight and Neuropsychological Function in Patients with Schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder with Psychotic Features
TLDR
The 3 insight dimensions do not appear to be associated with frontal impairment, as measured by the WCST, and no differences were seen in insight scores between sexes and between diagnostic groups.
Genes for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder? Implications for psychiatric nosology.
TLDR
The pattern of findings emerging from genetic studies shows increasing evidence for an overlap in genetic susceptibility across the traditional classification categories-including association findings at DAOA(G72), DTNBP1 (dysbindin), COMT, BDNF, DISC1, and NRG1.
Mood disorder with psychotic features, schizoaffective disorder, and schizophrenia with mood features: Trouble at the borders
TLDR
There is evidence that, clinically, mood disorders and schizophrenia do not separate neatly, and evidence is accumulating that overlap across diagnostic boundaries for both pathologic and etiologic factors exist, along with disorder-specific factors.
Contrasts in neuropsychological test profile between patients with first‐eoisode schizophienia and first‐episohe affective disorders
TLDR
The data tentatively suggest the existence of a dichotomy in Neuropsychological impairment, with psychotic patients showing similar neuropsychological deficits, while non‐psychotic affective patients perform comparably to controls.

TLDR
Backward digit span performance is comparable in bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, and may be an appropriate endophenotypic marker that cuts across diagnostic categories, while spatial working memory performance clearly distinguishes non-psychotic bipolar disorder patients from patients with functional psychosis.
