Cognition and Multiple Sclerosis (COMS)

The goal of this study is to understand how multiple sclerosis (MS) may impact cognition and behavior. We are looking for adult men and women with or without MS to participate in this study. Participants will be asked to come to UAMS for two visits. On the first visit, we will conduct confidential interviews about MS symptoms and give cognitive tests. This visit takes about 3 hours to complete. On the second visit, the participant will complete a MRI scan to map brain structure and function. The MRI takes about one hour, with the entire visit taking about 1 ½ hours to complete. Participants will be compensated up to $150 for their time.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Male or Female
  • Ages 25-55
  • (a) Patients with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis OR (b) Healthy subjects with no history of neurologic illness
  • No internal metals
  • No other major medical conditions
