Cognitive remediation (CR) is the best treatment to improve neurocognitive abilities for individuals with psychosis, however, there is no gold standard method of cognitive remediation available. Cognitive training refers to the training component of CR in which people practice computerized exercises that train specific cognitive abilities. There is no agreed upon approach within the field as to the type of training that is most effective with some studies, training higher level cognitive abilities, some training perceptual abilities, and others training general cognitive skills. This study will directly compare two competing methods of cognitive training on measures of neurophysiology, neurocognition, functional competence, and real-world functional performance.

Behavioral treatment that uses drill and practice, compensatory and adaptive strategies to facilitate improvement in targeted learning areas.
A set of cognitive functions that controls complex, goal-directed thought and behavior. Executive function involves multiple domains, such as CONCEPT FORMATION, goal management, cognitive flexibility, INHIBITION control, and WORKING MEMORY. Impaired executive function is seen in a range of disorders, e.g., SCHIZOPHRENIA; and ADHD.
