Web-based Cognitive Assessment for Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

12 June 2018

Up to 70% of people with MS experience a change in cognition. Traditional paper-based tests are expensive and require the expertise of a cognition specialist. Reliance on in-person assessment creates barriers for individuals who are limited in physical mobility, access to transportation, and/or geographical proximity. This research study will determine if a web-based cognitive assessment is effective for assessing cognition in individuals with MS.


  • Eligibility: Individuals with and without a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) who are at least 18 years old.
