Video recordings from 4th Nordic MS Symposium Oslo, Norway, January 29–30, 2016
The 4th Nordic MS Symposium focused on cognitive impairment, a symptom with detrimental effects on many aspects of daily life for MS patients. As early as 1881, French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot remarked on the presence of cognitive deficits in patients with MS. Our knowledge about the effects of MS on cognition has greatly increased since then, but our understanding of the different relations and causations is still incomplete. However, as cognition is increasingly recognised as a major feature of MS, its assessment and rehabilitation is receiving ever higher priority.
The objective of this symposium was to review current knowledge within different aspects of cognitive and other neuropsychological symptoms in MS.
