Journal of Multiple Sclerosis is an open access peer reviewed journal started in 2014. The journal is started and established by considering the rapid growth in the field of multiple sclerosis research. In the recent years, an effort has been made to incorporate more demanding tests in the MS batteries. Various treatment approaches and drug discoveries and therapeutic interventions have been increased in the field of multiple sclerosis research.
âAn important issue is the frequent underestimation or minimization of the heterogeneity of neuropsychological impairment in MS patients. This is related to the strong temptation to apply to MS studies approaches which were previously successful in neurodegenerative brain diseases in elderly patients (such as Alzheimer's and related disorders). In these populations, clinicians were able to identify relatively stable patterns of cognitive and/or behavioural dysfunction related to the regular involvement of certain brain areas (such as âhippocampic memory profileâ and apathy for Alzheimerâs disease, prominent dysexecutive impairment associated with disorders in social cognition in frontotemporal dementia)â Ehrle et al., Yet a Lot to Consider Regarding Cognition in Multiple Sclerosis.
