About the project

Many people with MS report feeling mentally 'slowed down' and find it difficult to concentrate. This can lead to problems engaging in various activities at home and at work.

The Information Processing Speed Study aims to use computerised reaction time tests to compare information processing speed differences between people with MS and healthy volunteers.

With this study we aim to determine the extent to which information processing speed influences correct decision making. This will help us better understand the mechanisms causing concentration difficulties in MS.
