Schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder

In the research line schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, we delineate the psychomotor deficits from cognitive symptoms and investigated their relationship with the negative syndrome. Psychomotor functioning can be investigated by use of clinical instruments, writing tasks and neuropsychological tools, each assessing different aspects of the symptom cluster.

This research line also explores the impact of antipsychotic treatment on psychomotor functioning in schizophrenia as well as the longitudinal course of these symptoms. Underlying neurobiological deficits were identified in schizophrenia.
