Correlational study analyzing neurocognition in patients with mental disorders. divided into three parts: genetic, clinic and neurodevelpomental. In the first part were found some correlations between two polymorphisms of TAAR1 and memory functions. In the second part it was investigated the role of age, number of admissions and duration of illness which correlates with lower executive functions and lastly it was investigated the neurodevelopement through AdAS questionnaire and it was found that subthresholds autistic traits correlates with reduction of inhibitory control.
