Bipolar disorder is associated with significant dysfunction in a broad range of neuropsychological domains and processes. Deficits have been reported to occur in symptomatic states (depression, [hypo]mania) as well as in remission (euthymia), having consequences for psychological well-being and social and occupational functioning. The profile and magnitude of neuropsychological deficits in bipolar disorder have been explored in a number of systematic reviews and meta-analyses. After discussing these briefly, this chapter will focus on examining the clinical and demographic factors that influence and modify the pattern and magnitude of deficits, as well as reviewing methods of assessment and analysis approaches which may improve our understanding of these problems.
