Cognitive Rehabilitation in Schizophrenia and Depression

We provide individuals with schizophrenia and depression with 6 weeks of cognitive remediation intervention that focuses on verbal memory and emotion regulation. We aim to test if this specific intervention can improve patients’ cognitive performance and social functioning regardless of their diagnosis. We are also investigating the impact of the cognitive remediation intervention on patients’ brain function and will be exploring the role of cortical reserve, plasticity and sleep quality as potential predictors of treatment response.
