Abstract

The evaluation of a computer-assisted attention training program is compared with a cognitive group training program. Both programs were devised to reduce cognitive deficits in schizophrenics. The training programs were given to 30 acute schizophrenics and 30 healthy subjects. Both were shown to be effective in reducing distraction of schizophrenics in reaction-time tasks. By means of training, schizophrenics may attain the same results in reaction time tasks as healthy individuals. The results are discussed under theoretical, methodical and practical aspects.
