Many people with MS suffer with some degree of cognitive impairment. This can include memory loss, difficulty concentrating and difficulty understanding or planning tasks.
In a recent study funded by the National MS society, researchers found that a specially designed online cognitive training program improved cognitive function in people with MS. This study was the largest controlled trial that has been used to test a brain training program in people with MS. They studied 135 people who were experiencing some cognitive problems. People were asked to use the training program for 60 hours over 12 weeks in their own homes. The program used for this study is a version of the online “Brain HQ Exercise” program, specifically designed for research studies. Researchers found that the people in the active brain training group had significantly greater improvement in cognitive function compared to those who did not use the program.
