Abstract

The current criteria for detecting a Clinical High-Risk (CHR) state for psychosis do not address cognitive impairment. A first step for identifying cognitive markers of psychosis risk would be to determine which aspects of neurocognitive performance are related with more severe psychotic-like symptoms. This study assessed cognitive impairment associated with prodromal symptoms in adolescents receiving public psychiatric treatment.
