[en] Persons diagnosed with bipolar disorder often suffer from cognitive impairments.
However, little is known concerning how these cognitive deficits impact their real world
functioning. We developed a computerized real-life activity task, where participants are
required to shop for a list of grocery store items. Twenty one individuals diagnosed with
bipolar disorder and 21 matched healthy controls were administered the computerized
shopping task. Moreover, the patient group was assessed with a battery of cognitive tests and
clinical scales. Performance on the shopping task significantly differentiated patients and
healthy controls for two variables: Total time to complete the shopping task and Mean time
spent to consult the shopping list. Moreover, in the patient group, performance on these
variables from the shopping task correlated significantly with cognitive functioning (i.e.
processing speed, verbal episodic memory, planning, cognitive flexibility, and inhibition) and
with clinical variables including duration of illness and real world functioning. Finally,
variables from the shopping task were found to significantly explain 41% of real world
functioning of patients diagnosed with bipolar disorder. These findings suggest that the
shopping task provides a good indication of real world functioning and cognitive functioning
of persons diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
