Answer

None of the antipsychotic medications currently available is particularly effective at addressing cognitive symptoms. A new initiative from NIMH, known as Measurement and Treatment Research to Improve Cognition in Schizophrenia (MATRICS), is a collaboration between various programs to develop tools for measuring cognition in clinical trials and aiding development of drugs that target these symptoms.
