Many patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) have or will develop some cognitive deficits. They worsen, aside from motor disorders, activities of daily living and reduce independence. This part of MS clinical picture is better known thanks to neuropsychological research studies and neuroimaging. Psychological rehabilitation and pharmacological agents may help to alleviate cognitive dysfunctions.
