Bradyphrenia is a neurological term referring to the slowness of thought common to many disorders of the brain.[1]


Disorders characterized by bradyphrenia include Parkinson's disease and forms of schizophrenia. Bradyphrenia can also be a side effect of psychiatric medications.[2][not in citation given]


Patients with bradyphrenia may describe or may manifest slowed thought processes, evidenced by increased latency of response.
