Recognition of the effectiveness of our cognitive remediation software for schizophrenia patients (RECOS) has just entered another stage. Indeed, Pascal Vianin, co-author of the software, has just published an article in Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging, supported by medical imaging, shows an increase in activity in the Broca’s area of the brain in patients using our software compared with patients not using it.
The treatment lasts 14 weeks. Although group size remains too small (2 x 8 people) for scientists to categorically say that the results are indisputable, it is the first time that we can literally see the effect of using our tools on the brain.
