Digital Cognition Study

Brain Re-Training in Multiple Sclerosis

The purpose of this study is to begin to test a brain training video game in people with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

The first 60 people (40 with MS or CIS and 20 without MS) will complete a one-time visit, lasting two hours, where they undergo tests of their physical functioning and their thinking. At the end of the visit, they will try out the video game.

The next 20 people with MS (or CIS) will complete the same one-time in-clinic series of tests. In addition, they will take home the brain training video game and use it for 25 minutes a day, 5 days a week, for a month. At the end of this month, these patients will return to clinic to repeat the in clinic digital cognition testing battery.
