There are cognitive remediation techniques that could help relieve cognitive impairment symptoms in multiple sclerosis.
In multiple sclerosis (MS), cognitive remediation may help relieve cognitive impairment symptoms. The findings come from NYU Langone Medical Center, which may help offer relief from cognitive impairment in multiple sclerosis.
In a randomized, controlled trial, multiple sclerosis patients used a computer-based cognitive remediation training program at home for 12 weeks. These patients had significantly higher cognitive test scores compared to those who used a placebo computer program.
Lead author Leigh Charvet said, “This trial demonstrates that computer-based cognitive remediation accessed from home can be effective in improving cognitive symptoms for individuals with MS. The remote delivery of an at-home test and findings of cognitive benefit may also be generalizable to other neurological conditions in which cognitive function is compromised.”
Cognitive problems in multiple sclerosis can affect memory, attention, concentration, information processing, verbal fluency, and executive functioning.
