CONCLUSIONS—The profile of affective-prosodic deficits found in impaired schizophrenic patients is characteristic of RBD, supporting the concept that schizophrenia is a bihemispheric disease process. These deficits may also represent cardinal symptoms of schizophrenia as they are highly prevalent and, except for spontaneous affective prosody, are not associated statistically with traditional clusters of schizophrenic by: The term minimal brain dysfunction (MBD) refers to a syndrome in children with learning disabilities despite overall normal intellectual skills and in the absence of gross neurological deficits.

The EEG is not considered to play a major role in the evaluation or management of the child with MBD. Psychiatric symptoms had a larger impact on test performance in the affective disorder groups than in the schizophrenic group.

CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that patients with schizophrenia perform systematically worse on cognitive measures than patients with affective disorders, which is consistent with their generally poorer outcome.

Results from a study of high-risk offspring found that children born to mothers with schizophrenia have poorer test performance than those born to mothers with affective disorders. This finding provided further evidence that the nature of Continuous Performance Test deficits in schizophrenia might be different from that in affective by: As mentioned in an earlier post (Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia - Similar and Different, 3/5/13), schizophrenia and bipolar disorder have some overlapping symptoms and brain abnormalities.

Affective deficits have long been considered a prominent feature of schizophrenia and play a central role in recent theory and research on the pathophysiology of this disorder.
