About this item

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system which can strike people in their prime with devastating impact.  In recent years, researchers have begun to study the multilayered and complicated cognitive problems that are often associated with MS.  But there is surprisingly little information available today for neuropsychologists and other mental health practitioners about how cognitive impairment impacts life and behavior, and how patients can manage their disease through medicine, exercise, and rehabilitation.
Cognition and Behavior in Multiple Sclerosis addresses this dearth of scholarly work by offering a comprehensive analysis of the effects of multiple sclerosis (MS) on cognition.  Authors survey the impact of cognitive impairment on behavioral problems, employment-related issues, and the development of neuropsychiatric disorders.  Practitioners will learn to interpret MRIs and provide treatment for a wide range of symptoms and disorders including depression, fatigue, and the many challenges with daily living that patients with MS often confront.  This volume also examines the broad social impact of MS, as well as cutting-edge studies showing how cognitive rehabilitation can be achieved through exercise, pharmacological treatment, online tests and mobile applications.
