Computer-assisted cognitive remediation for schizophrenia: A randomized single-blind pilot study
TLDR
Computer-assisted cognitive remediation alone may not be sufficient for robust or generalized effects on cognitive and electrophysiological measures in schizophrenia patients, and practice effects might explain change over time on several cognitive measures for all groups, consistent with studies indicating task-specific improvement.

TLDR
Findings suggest that specific practice in neurocognitive exercises targeted at attention, memory and language, produce improvements in Neurocognitive function that are not solely attributable to non-specific stimulation associated with working with a computer, interacting with a clinician or cognitive challenge, but that non- specific stimulation has a salutary effect on neurocognition as well.
