Based on the fact that both brain structure and neurocognitive functioning are significantly heritable and affected in both schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, relationships between them are expected. However, previous studies report inconsistent findings. Also, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder are classified as separate disease entities, but demonstrate overlap with regard to symptomatology and genetic liability. Few studies have directly compared brain structure abnormalities or relationships between brain structure and neurocognitive fun...
