Brain perfusion and neuropsychological changes in schizophrenic patients after cognitive rehabilitation.
ABSTRACT The role of cognitive variables was compared in two single cases of schizophrenia hypofrontality. SPECT procedures and neuropsychological tests were used to study frontal brain function. After cognitive rehabilitation, neuropsychological performance were enhanced in both patients, but only one of them showed enhanced the frontal blood flow. The brain perfusion changes after cognitive rehabilitation could be associated with the cognitive-dependent hypofrontality.
