Schizophrenia is a chronic severe CNS disorder for which the hallmark symptom is disabling psychosis that alters
perception, thoughts, and behaviour.1 Impaired cognition is an under-recognized symptom of schizophrenia that
interferes with daily life. Compared with the general population, people with schizophrenia have lower rates of
unemployment, marriage, and independent living. The functional impairment of schizophrenia contributes to
its substantial disease burden.
