Abstract

The relationship between neurocognitive impairment and employment in a cohort of 130 predominantly symptomatic individuals with HIV-1 infection was examined. Participants were classified as employed (full or part-time for pay) or unemployed (N = 64) and administered a neuropsychological test battery. When covarying for CD4 count, age, and physical limitations, the results revealed that unemployed men performed below that of employed participants on tasks of memory, set shifting-cognitive flexibility, and psychomotor speed. The results are discussed within the context of similar findings in other illnesses.
