schizophreniaWe are excited to share this video news report about a schizophrenia study we have been working on for the past few years. The e-CAeSAR Study is being conducted in partnership with the Schizophrenia Trials Network at ten top-tier research centers nationwide. The trial tests a unique online cognitive training program (called “PACR”) designed for people with schizophrenia who wish to improve their brain speed, memory, thinking and people skills. A total of 150 people will be included in this study.

As mental illness expert and psychiatrist Peter Buckley notes in the news story, “It’s to find out, can we retrain the brains of people with schizophrenia using computer games?” He adds, “It’s something people could do in their own time, which is much more powerful than having to come and see a doctor.”

The PACR program is currently for investigational use only; for a list of participating sites near you, please email Cate Stasio.
