The results of one randomised control trial testing a psychological rehabilitation programme aimed at information processing strategies showed improvements in cognition post-treatment.
To determine whether there are concomitant brain activation changes as a result of engaging in cognitive remediation therapy (CRT).
Three groups (patients receiving control therapyor CRT and a healthy control group) were investigated in a repeated measures design using the two-back test. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data and a broad assessment of executive functioning were completed at baseline and post-treatment. Brain activation changes were identified after accounting for possible task-correlated motion artefact.
fMRI analyses indicate that the control group showed decreased activation butthetwo patient groups showed an increase in activation over time. The patient group that received successful CRT had significantly increased brain activation in regions associated with working memory particularly the frontocortical areas.
This isthefirsttimethat brain activation changes in a seriously disabled group of patients with schizophrenia can be associated clearly with psychological rather than pharmacological therapy.
