Questions relating to cognitive functioning in persons with psychiatric illness comprise one of the most common referrals to neuropsychologists, second currently only to referrals for evaluation of closed head injury (Grant & Adams, 1996). The well-informed reader may ask, particularly in this age of managed health care, what advantages are present in conducting neuropsychological evaluations with psychiatric patients given that the incidence of overt neurological dysfunction is relatively small in these populations, aside from the iatrogenic effects of neuroleptic medication. Neuropsychological evaluations can be construed as relatively timeconsuming as well as costly; and occasionally they yield more questions than answers. These criticisms not withstanding, there are several important rationales for conducting neuropsychological assessments in neuropsychiatric populations.
