Riassunto

Il Cogpack® è uno dei software maggiormente utilizzati sia in ambito clinico che di ricerca nella riabilitazione cognitiva della schizofrenia. Da un’analisi della letteratura (Pubmed, Google Scholar, con i seguenti termini di ricerca: Cogpack®Marker, Cog-Pack Marker, Schizophrenia) risultano oltre cento pubblicazioni che utilizzano questo software. Dato che il programma è stato sviluppato in Germania, il maggior numero di studi è stato pubblicato sulle principali riviste tedesche a diffusione nazionale e internazionale, ma attualmente il suo impiego è diffuso a livello internazionale. La sua efficacia viene indagata sia come potenziante i domini cognitivi notoriamente deficitari nella schizofrenia sia in associazione ad altri tipi di riabilitazione psichiatrica al fine di verificare il miglioramento del funzionamento quotidiano dei pazienti.
