Abstract

Clinical neuropsychologists play a pivotal role in assessment and treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. Neuropsychologists can first evaluate the extent to which tested difficulties displayed by patients may map onto real-world problems, then help patients make modifications to daily routines that allow them to circumvent cognitive difficulties they display. Neuropsychologists can also help identify and treat the depression that is so common, but often overlooked, in MS patients. This chapter discusses the pathophysiology of MS, neuropsychological deficits in MS, related emotional disorders, neuropsychological/cognitive rehabilitation in MS, and other demyelinating diseases.
