Two prior studies suggest that bipolar I disorder (BP1) cases are more likely to have lower M/E scores, i.e., be evening types compared with control groups. These studies did not recruit controls systematically and did not evaluate key clinical variables. We sought to replicate the reported associations in a large, well defined sample, while evaluating potential confounding factors. Adults with… CONTINUE READING
