Reviews - What do customers think about Multiple Sclerosis: Understanding the Cognitive Challenges?

Helped with current challenges being faced with  Jun 18, 2007
As being a person newly diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, I find this book quite informative for some of the challenges I am currently facing. It has also helped me speak with my neurologist and take some actions that were needed.
Good coverage of this topic  Mar 25, 2007
Like so many topics relating to multiple sclerosis, cognitive challenges are hard to pinpoint because they vary among patients and can be affected by other factors as well, such as age or other neurologic conditions. I thought the authors have done a good job listing and defining elements of the subject: cognition, the assessment of cognitive changes, treatment, and coping and/or managing strategies.
I must insist that fatigue does effect cognitive abilities. Most of us with the disease will probably agree that tasks requiring cognitive skills are better fulfilled early in the day or after a period of rest. More tests of this connection will, I believe, bear out the ideas given here.
This is definitely an important read for MS-ers and those who interact with them.
MS: Understanding Cognitive Challenges  Jan 9, 2007
As a Multiple Sclerosis Certified Nurse who also has MS, I found this to be a fairly comprehensive, yet easily understood discussion of why we sometimes falter mentally with MS. The description and role of neuropsychological testing in treatment and defining disability was sketchy at best but did provide a basic underpinning for the logic of doing this type of testing.

What I did not agree with was the role of fatigue and cognitive deficit. The authors were clear that they were aware of this correlation but could find no proof. Their sample sizes in the studies done in this area were, admittedly, quite small.
