Abstract

We assessed the relationship between neurocognitive status and role function in 14 euthymic bipolar subjects. Role function scores were bimodally distributed. Poor verbal memory and executive function were associated with functional impairment, suggesting that functional disability may be restricted to a subgroup of cognitively impaired bipolar patients.
