Description

Multiple sclerosis is the most common neurological disease affecting young and middle-aged adults, and while much is known about its classic motor and sensory symptoms, it has only been during the past decade, with the advent of specialized neuropsychological test procedures and brain imaging methods, that the cognitive and behavioral changes associated with the disorder have come to be better understood. This book charts that recent progress. It provides a balanced, interdisciplinary view, covering the prevalence, range, type, and course of cognitive and affective disturbances in multiple sclerosis; the interrelationship of the neurobehavioral disturbance with brain abnormalities as visualized by neuroimaging; and the impact of cognitive and behavioral disabilities on patient rehabilitation. The book will be of value to all physicians and psychologists who deal with MS patients. It will update their knowledge of the disease and its ramifications, and will help in communicating this information to patients and their families.show more
