Brief description Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder share some common genes and cognitive deficits, yet manifest differently in terms of symptom expression, illness course, and functional impact. This research tests the assertion that genes implicated as common to these conditions may code for impairments in prefrontal cognitive and sub-cortical emotion processing. We also examine whether between-diagnosis distinctions in these brain responses may be mediated by hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis functioning.
