Advancing mental health through technology
In our ongoing UCS/CTSI-funded pilot study, we have been investigating the feasibility of providing iPads to individuals with schizophrenia for remotely neuropsychological assessments and cognitive training (CT).

In progress, however: to date, 14 individuals with schizophrenia have enrolled
