Please note that the job is no longer active!

The main objective of the research project is to evaluate the presence of cognitive impairment in MS patients at the onset of disease . Each patient will be undergoing clinical evaluation by EDSS scale and MFSC . The presence of cognitive impairment will be assessed by the administration of a battery of cognitive tests such as the Short Battery of Rao and STROOP . Patients will also be subjected to 3 tesla MRI for analysis group that will take advantage of morphological techniques such as Voxel Based Morfometry ( VBM ) and the Resting State ( RS ) technique of functional magnetic resonance imaging at rest . Ultimate goals of the project are to study how the impairment of certain areas or brain circuitry correlates with cognitive impairment detected clinically and as drug therapies and / or rehabilitation may have a role in preventing or slowing the evolution.
