Can the schizophrenic brain be retrained to work around the dysfunctional area?

Neuroplasticity makes the rehabilitation of stroke victims possible. if schizophrenia is caused by damage to the brain, or to the disc 1 gene as mentioned by Allan Jones, then can the brain be trained to "ignore" the damaged areas and develop other parts of the brain to take over those functions? Anyone done any work on this
