Reduced functional activation is linked to reduced cortical thickness in the brains of patients with bipolar disorder, a new study reports.

The research, using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), found the abnormalities in patients not currently experiencing depression or mania, which suggests that there is a structural basis for altered neural processing that may help explain why cognitive deficits persist even during periods of normal mood.
