Riassunto

Le difficoltà di trattamento dei deficit cognitivi hanno portato a un crescente interesse per gli approcci sperimentali basati sulla riabilitazione neurocognitiva dei deficit neuropsicologici evidenti nei pazienti affetti da schizofrenia. Basandosi sull’ipotesi che ridurre i deficit aumenterebbe il funzionamento globale (Wykes et al., 1999), negli ultimi anni diversi studi hanno investigato gli effetti di programmi di riabilitazione cognitiva standardizzati su un’ampia gamma di deficit neurocognitivi nella schizofrenia. I risultati concordano tutti nell’affermare che tali deficit possono essere modificati grazie all’impiego di tecniche riabilitative neurocognitive; le più recenti affiancano alla pratica ripetuta un supporto computerizzato.
