Only a very few journals maintain high standards in terms of the content they publish, one has to be careful while picking information as content that is not reliable and untrue can be harmful to research as well as society. Generally, journals can be rated by considering impact factor, reputation of authors, editorial board members and also in terms of the fee they charge.
Cognition is the mental act or process by which knowledge is acquired, including perception, intuition, and reasoning. Cognitive impairment is the strongest determinant of poor functional outcomes. Cognitive deficits are evident at the time of the first psychotic episode; they persist and may worsen in midlife and late life. Conventional psychopharmacology has only minimally improved cognition. Mounting evidence of structural abnormalities as well as neuroplastic, neurochemical and circuitry impairments suggest potential etiologies for understanding the altered neurological functions underlying cognitive deficits in schizophrenia. These deficits are also manifest in intentionality, or Theory of Mind (ToM).
