Content By: Van Rheenen, T.E., Lewandowski, K.E., Bauer, I.E., et al. (2020). Current understandings of the trajectory and emerging correlates of cognitive impairment in bipolar disorder: An overview of evidence. Bipolar Disorders, (22). 13– 27. https://doi.org/10.1111/bdi.12821   

Course Description: Cognitive dysfunction is a hallmark symptom seen in a significant portion of individuals presenting with bipolar disorder (BD). However, the cause, trajectory, and correlates of said dysfunction remain(s) vague at this present day. It is essential for mental health professionals to form a better understanding of these factors to develop more efficient treatment parameters. The attached study critically reviews recent applicable literature/studies that concern emerging correlations of cognitive functioning in bipolar patients. Research focuses on the empirical link between cognitive impairment and increased inflammation, structural abnormalities, and reduced neuroprotection exhibited by bipolar patients. The authors also focus on genetic predispositions as a possible reason for the inconsistencies in BD literature so far.        

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the central aim of the study and the methods related to reviewing the impairments in cognitive functioning seen in a large percentage of bipolar individuals
  2. Evaluate the different reasons that brain structure can be compromised resulting in neuroprotective issues and problematic inflammatory states
  3. Examine the clinical, molecular, neural, and lifestyle correlates of cognitive impairment in the bipolar disorder lifespan

Course Outline:  

  • Read and understand Current understandings of the trajectory and emerging correlates of cognitive impairment in bipolar disorder: An overview of evidence
  • Review the Course Descriptions and Learning Objectives
  • Consider the factors related to the trajectories of cognitive dysfunction correlates and their role in bipolar disorder   
  • Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article
  • Re-assess for any missed questions, returning to the referenced article to better understand the relationship between bipolar disorder and cognitive dysfunction
