Abstract

INTEGRATION OF TOUCH TECHNOLOGY IN COGNITIVE REMEDIATION OF VISUOSPATIAL WORKING MEMORY IN SCHIZOPHRENIA

Sarkis Abi Tannous, Georges Haddad, Souheil Hallit, Khodor Haidar Hassan* and Marion Wolff

ABSTRACT

Objective: In this study, our aim was to evaluate the use of new touch technologies including touch pads in cognitive remediation of visuospatial working memory in schizophrenia. Methods: The study was performed with 20 individuals with schizophrenia (DSM-IV-TR), hospitalized for long stays and stabilized clinically. The remediation phase took place over 12 months when cognitive assessments were conducted to assess the progression of patients. Results: Promising results in terms of improved cognitive function were obtained. Cognitive remediation by the touch interface allows better performance on visuospatial working memory in people with schizophrenia. Furthermore, the use of touch technology is a positive contribution in terms of interest, acceptability, motivation, sense of efficacy and satisfaction associated with the use of this method of remediation. Conclusion: These results lead us to consider the need to integrate the new touch technologies in cognitive remediation in schizophrenia programs.

Keywords: Schizophrenia, Cognitive Remediation, Working Memory, Touch Technology, Motivation, Ergonomics.
