A study funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).
Neurocognition involves information processing, ability to focus, accessing/using memory, and learning, and it plays an integral role in the health and well-being of individuals with serious mental illness such as mood disorders and schizophrenia. Research has shown that deficits in neurocognition are closely associated with the severity of serious mental illnesses.
