Multiple sclerosis: neurobehavioral aspects
Cognitive impairment is a common feature of multiple sclerosis and often leads to declines in the ability to initiate and carry out instrumental activities of daily living. Cognitive impairment in multiple sclerosis affects most cognitive domains, but processing speed, visual learning, and short-term memory deficits are most common. Neuropsychiatric symptoms are common, with lifetime prevalence rates of depression approaching 50%.
