Abstract

A three‐factor model is proposed for clinical assessment of cognitive and neuropsychological impairments in schizophrenia. The first factor is stable, pervasive and vulnerability‐linked. The second and third include executive, memory and conceptual abilities and are episode‐linked. The third factor may be amenable to psychosocial treatment.
