  1. During mania, WAIS-III, BADS, and trail-making test scores were low, but these were improved after recovery. WCST score was not affected during mania. WAIS-III scores associated with attention, i.e., digit span, letter–number sequencing, and picture completion, were low during mania and improved after recovery. WAIS-III scores associated with processing speed, i.e., digit symbol-coding and symbol research, were low during mania and partially improved after recovery
