BACKGROUND: The proliferation of computerized neuropsychological assessment devices (CNADs) for screening and monitoring cognitive impairment is increasing exponentially. Previous reviews of computerized tests for multiple sclerosis (MS) were primarily qualitative and did not rigorously compare CNADs […]
A Videogame-Based Digital Therapeutic to Improve Processing Speed in People with Multiple Sclerosis: A Feasibility Study.
INTRODUCTION: Self-administered in-home digital therapeutics could expand access to cognitive rehabilitation for individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS), over half of whom experience cognitive impairment (CI). However, feasibility in an MS population must be clarified. This study […]
Background: Cognitive monitoring that can detect short-term change in multiple sclerosis is challenging. Computerized cognitive batteries such as the CogState Brief Battery can rapidly assess commonly affected cognitive domains. Objectives: The purpose of this study was […]
Necessity of technicians for computerized neuropsychological assessment devices in multiple sclerosis.
OBJECTIVE: Determine the influence of technician supervision on computer-administered cognitive tests in multiple sclerosis (MS). METHODS: Eighty MS patients underwent assessment using the CogState Brief Battery (CSBB) and the Cleveland Clinic Cognitive Battery (C3B). Each was […]
BACKGROUND: Cognitive dysfunction affects up to 65% of multiple sclerosis (MS) patients and progresses over time. Natalizumab has been shown to be superior to placebo in preserving cognition for the first two years of therapy. OBJECTIVES: […]
