Following the new processes which have been based on the having an adequate understanding of the breadth as well as the nature of the cognitive dysfunction in mental illness to be able to aid the establishment of medication which will surely become better in disabling the aspect of mental illness. By doing so part of the Measurement and Treatment Research to Improve Cognition in Schizophrenia has obtained from the large research body which is focused on providing an understanding of the sensory bases of the particular cognitive activities in human and the animal models and research on the nature as well as the nervous system biology of the cognitive social impairment in persons suffering from mental illness. Research’s main purpose in this paper is to describe the different ways in which the cognitive social impairment in mental illness are connected to, controlled by, and even the impact the mental illness has on motivational, emotional as well as stress areas. A health practitioner who has interacted with patients suffering from mental illness may be aware that cognitive dysfunction may be out-standing; the patients may also show a host of the emotional as well as the motivational deficits. The shortfalls may include the inappropriate effect, less motivation of achieving, social withdrawal as well as the minimal ability to experience pleasure. Based on the historical findings, works related to cognitive as well as emotional function in mental illness has turned out to be a parallel process with researchers focusing on either a single domain or the other. But with most of the recent research works, there has been an exploration of the essential interaction among the cognition as well as the emotion in mental illness.

The main theme of the discussion in this research is emphasized on the significance of understanding the principle of the motivational process in mental illness (Wang, 2008). The major reason for this priority is the possible interest that several features of the cognitive social impairment of the mental illness may be secondary to the natural deficiency of motivation that distances all the features of a person’s growth or to more particular motivational shortfalls which are related with basic motivation to perform better on cognitive undertaking which are abstracted. The study of cognition activities on strong persons it often focuses on the presumption that individuals are motivated in a particular way hence performing better on cognitive tasks may be because they are driven by the intrinsic motivation to perform better or due to the external support that is given by money or even praise. The above assumptions may not be true for a patient suffering from mental illness because the illness impairs either the responsively towards extrinsic supporters or intrinsic motivational. If that’s the case it would be asserted that poor cognitive task performance would reflect the lack of motivation or engagement to perform better rather than the inherent toughness with the psychological process drawn by the undertaking. Depending on this theory studies have portrayed that conducting cognitive undertakings like the Wisconsin Card Sorting Task, facial impact perception as well as the Span of Apprehension may be improved through the utilization of monetary incentives. Also, several other researchers have not proved that monetary support mainly uplifts the cognitive undertaking performance between patients who are suffering from mental illness as well as the same researchers portray improvement because of the monetary support do not inevitably portray a complete bettering of the cognitive social impairment. Hence the main role the motivational process plays in an impaired cognitive undertaking performance in mental illness is still not clear. Comment by Wendy Nickerson: This segment needs to be reworded as it does not flow easily and is difficult to read and understand.
In addition, if research may firmly explain some of the proportions related to cognitive impairment in mental illness, it is because of the motivational factors and as there researchers we are required to understand how the motivation may interact with the influence of cognition based on social as well as occupational activities that are related to mental illness. It also may be naturally easy to understand how minimal motivation may lead to poor accomplishment on the experimental cognitive undertakings in the laboratory setting which may have no basic importance or any relationship to life activity (Fussell, 2012). Also, the motivational factors may contribute to influencing the connection between the cognitive activity as well as the social or occupational activities. The possibilities are that the motivational shortfalls are the “third” changeable factors which may lead to a counterfeit connection between the two. It means that motivational shortfall between people with mental illness may contribute to the poor accomplishment of the cognitive undertakings in the laboratory as well as failing to engage in life activities which are needed live as well as work independently. Comment by Wendy Nickerson: I am not sure what you are saying here? How could you say it more simply? Comment by Wendy Nickerson: Are you meaning that they may not be motivated to try hard on laboratory testing?
Another essential reason for focusing on understanding the motivation between the research team members the way learning may influence by the motivation or support in mental illness. People apparently learn from the mistakes they make either when performing cognitive tasks or when they are in real life scenario due to the intrinsic motivation they are able to conduct tasks excellently or due to the motivation provided more stable support for unseen successful performance (Neeraja, 2011). Also, motivational shortfalls may contribute leading the individuals with mental illness to tend to react differently to errors or they are not able to learn from their setbacks and this is some of the problems that may contribute to significant disability in both the real-life situation as well as the laboratory setting. More research work is required to provide a clear understanding of how the control of motivational factors on learning in mental illness in both the real-life situation as well as the laboratory setting.
