Rank #19: BNPA 2014: Schizophrenia and cognition

Podcast cover
Read more
Cognitive impairment is generally considered an important facet of the schizophrenia syndrome but how fundamental is it?

In this podcast Alan Carson discusses the question with Eileen Joyce, Consultant Neuropsychiatrist at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery. She argues that there is a limited general resource in schizophrenia that constrains the performance of a wide range of specific cognitive functions and underlies the development of psychotic symptoms as well as determining functional outcome. She also outlines the possible neurobiological underpinnings.
