Dr. Torres’ research interests involve investigation of cognitive functioning in psychosis and mood disorders, with an emphasis on memory, executive, and self-regulatory functions. Current work includes investigation of neuropsychological functioning in first episode bipolar disorder, as well as changes in cognition throughout the early course of the illness. He also investigates the relationship between cognitive functioning and psychosocial outcomes in bipolar disorder, in order to better understand the specific cognitive processes that best predict functional outcome in bipolar disorder, or whether the cognition/psychosocial functioning relationship is present early in the course of illness.
