Abstract

Background: The aim of the research was to compare brain/behavioral systems, and quality of life among people with schizophrenia, people with bipolar disorder, and normal people.

Materials and Methods: In this causal-comparative research, 90 people consisting of people with schizophrenia, people with bipolar disorder, and normal people were selected using access sampling method, and they completed the Gray-Wilson Personality Questionnaire and Quality of Life Scale.

Results: The findings suggested that there is a significant difference in behavioral inhibition and activation inhibition between normal people and people with bipolar disorder, as well as in sub-scales from quality of life of normal people and people with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

Conclusion: Impairment in brain/behavioral systems and low quality of life provides explanations for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
