Özet

Objective: Neurocognitive impairments in bipolar patients as a possible endophenotype is a growing field of research. Impairments in executive functions and memory have been reported in relatives of patients with bipolar disorder, suggesting that they could be potential endophenotypes for genetic studies. In this study, neuropsychological performance in unaffected siblings of patients diagnosed as bipolar I disorder is compared to that of matched healthy controls.
