Details and patient eligibility


Bipolar disorder is a major health concern. Intercritical periods are marked with residual symptoms, both thymic and cognitive, which affects quality of life of patients, but also the quality of observance. The implementation of cognitive remediation programs could be interesting. The aim of this study is to evaluate the overall performance on euthymic bipolar patients with memory complaints included in the program named "COGMED", targeting the working memory. The impact of this program on compliance, quality of life, and memory complaints will be evaluated. The investigator will measure whether there is a correlation between working memory and overall performances. Finally, the investigator will try to achieve a profile of bipolar patients in whom the Cogmed program is particularly effective on a plan of overall performance.

Full description

Patients with bipolar disorder and memory complaints will be recruited. Two visits : at baseline (V0) : the investigator evaluate bipolar disorder, treatment, mood, quality of life, global functioning, and memory complaints. Patients also have a neuropsychological assessment. The COGMED program is proposed to patients with memory complaints and explain by the investigator 4-6 weeks after the end of the program (11-13 weeks after V1) : the same evaluation is realized to compare score before and after the program of cognitive remediation. Between the two visits the patient will benefit of COGMED program, at home, during 5 weeks. COGMED is a remediation cognitive program, based on working memory, consisting on daily exercises at home on a computer.
