Schizoaffective Disorder clinical trials at UC Health
4 in progress, 2 open to new patients

  • "Cognitive Training Delivered Remotely to Individuals With Psychosis

    open to eligible people ages 18-60

    The purpose of this study is to use remote methods and scalable interactive neurotechnology to generate important data on the potential for remote targeted cognitive treatment in people with schizophrenia. The investigators will perform a double-blind randomized control trial in 120 participants with schizophrenia, comparing: 1) An evidence-based structured program of 40 hours of on-line auditory and social cognitive training (exercises over 12 weeks (-3.5 hours per week), delivered with an innovative digital application which provides users with a motivation coach to set personalized goals and with secure social networking for peer support, Personalized Real-time Intervention for Motivational Enhancement (PRIME) ; vs.2) A control condition of free-choice on-line cognitive exercises, encouraged at 3.5 hours per week over 12 weeks, delivered with a standard commercial goal-setting app, "Daily Goals".

  • Enhancing Cognitive Training Through Exercise Following a First Schizophrenia Episode

    open to eligible people ages 18-45

    This is a confirmatory randomized controlled trial of the efficacy of a novel intervention combining neuroplasticity-based cognitive training with aerobic exercise, compared to the same systematic cognitive training alone. Treatment occurs for 6 months after randomization, with a followup assessment at 12 months. The investigators hypothesize that combining neuroplasticity-based computerized cognitive training and neurotrophin-enhancing physical exercise will produce neurotrophin increases and cognitive and functional improvements, even relative to cognitive training alone. The investigators target the period shortly after a first episode of schizophrenia to maximize the generalization of cognitive improvement to functional outcome, before chronic disability is established.

  • Mobile CBT for Negative Symptoms

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This randomized controlled clinical trial will test a combined group contact plus mobile CBT-informed skills training intervention targeting defeatist attitudes in consumers with schizophrenia in comparison to a supportive contact control group in order to change motivational negative symptoms linked to defeatist attitudes.

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This clinical trial will test a combined group therapy plus mobile cognitive behavioral therapy intervention targeting defeatist attitudes in consumers with schizophrenia in order to change motivational negative symptoms linked to defeatist attitudes.
