Abstract

The importance of neurocognitive deficits in schizophrenia has motivated the «E. Minkowsi» section of the Lausanne University Department for adult psychiatry to develop a cognitive remediation program for young schizophrenic patients. Preliminary results indicate a significant improvement in cognitive abilities in most patients. However, cerebral mechanisms involved in these improvements are not understood today. Some new aspects of synaptic plasticity are mentioned to explain the cerebral modifications associated with the trained cognitive functions.
