Cognitive dysfunctions in recovered melancholic patients.

Author information

  • 1Department of Psychiatry and Clinical Psychology, Hospital Clínic i Provincial of Barcelona, Spain.


Cognitive dysfunctions were studied in symptom-free patients suffering from Recurrent Depressive Disorder with melancholia. Their performances on a standard neuropsychological battery were compared with those of a healthy sample matched for age and educational level. Statistically significant differences were found in Immediate Visual Memory, Delayed Logical and Visual Memory, Paired Learning and Block Design. Results seem to indicate that the cognitive disfunctions are not likely to be only mnesic. All these data suggest that these disfunctions found in some melancholic depressives could not be state-dependent.
