Neuroplasticity-oriented Cognitive Intervention in Early Onset and First Admission Schizophrenia

The purpose of this study is to reveal the specific effects of computer-aided cognitive training on course and rehabilitation in early onset schizophrenia

Impairment in cognitive functions is one of the main symptoms in schizophrenia and is currently one of the challenges in the treatment of the disease. We examine the beneficial effect of computer-aided training program on course and rehabilitation of young psychotic patients with early onset psychosis. In addition we develop predictors for the course of disorder from neuroimaging data.
