Abstract

Schizophrenia is a mental disorder characterized by a breakdown of cognitive processes and by a deficit of typical emotional responses. Effectiveness of computerized task has been demonstrated in the field of cognitive rehabilitation. However, current rehabilitation programs based on virtual environments normally focus on higher cognitive functions, not covering social cognition training. This paper presents a set of video-based tasks specifically designed for the rehabilitation of emotional processing deficits in patients in early stages of schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorders. These tasks are part of the Mental Health program of Guttmann NeuroPersonalTrainer® cognitive tele-rehabilitation platform, and entail innovation both from a clinical and technological perspective in relation with former traditional therapeutic contents.
