Abstract

Background: It is well known that the subcortical cognitive impairment pattern is frequent in MS. Evidence of impaired high level language function has recently been reported. Such disturbances have marked consequences on many aspects of everyday life. Objectives: The object of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of a specific computerized battery of stimulation exercises for attention and executive functions, in terms of changes in cognitive and high-level language performance, quality of life and emotional state. Method: During the study period (1998-2001), a standard assessment protocol which included neuropsychological, psychosocial and medical parameters was administered to 48 patients with MS, half of whom followed a 6 month rehabilitation program specifically designed for the MS impairment pattern. Conclusions: Preliminary data available to date according to the results of two rehabilitation exercises, show an improvement in performance both in attentional and executive tasks with earlier progress in attentional tasks than in executive tasks.
