UCSD Performance-based Skills Assessment Total Score (Measures Functional Capacity) [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Performance-based measure of functional capacity in five domains: Communication, Finance, Recreation Planning, Transportation, and Household Chores Scale ranges from 0-100. Subscales are summed to yield the total score. Higher scores represent better performance.

Verbal list learning task with three learning trials and a delay trial. Percent retained refers to the percentage of items recalled at the delay trial, compared to the third learning trial.

Score ranges from 0-100. Higher scores represent better performance.

Cognitive Training for Patients With Schizophrenia
Cognitive Training for Patients With Schizophrenia

This research on cognitive training addresses the following questions:

  1. Does cognitive training lead to improved cognition, functional abilities, psychiatric symptoms, treatment adherence, or quality of life in patients with psychoses?
  2. What are the neurocognitive and non-cognitive factors that predict good outcomes following cognitive rehabilitation? In addition to verbal learning and memory, immediate verbal memory, vigilance, and executive functioning, the cognitive training intervention attempted to improve prospective memory ability (i.e., the ability to remember to do things in the future, such as take medications or attend a doctor's appointment).
