The test set CFSD Cognitive Functions - Schizophrenic Disorders assesses the cognitive status of patients with various forms of schizophrenia.
In addition to positive and negative symptoms, impairments of cognitive functions (such as attention and memory) are frequently encountered in schizophrenia. They are associated with significant restrictions of everyday functioning and have a major impact on the social and occupational rehabilitation of the affected person. Schizophrenic disorders usually commence fluidly in adolescence and become chronic. It is therefore particularly important to use this test set with individuals in whom a schizophrenic disorder is suspected and to assess the progress of the disorder. In the context of clinical neuropsychology the CFSD provides an efficient means of assessing adult psychiatric patients.
