Multiple Sclerosis

What is it?

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks the fatty coating around the brain and spinal cord nerves known as myelin. This process is known as demyelination or the removal of myelin. As multiple sclerosis progresses, people living with multiple sclerosis may experience muscle weakness, spasms, paralysis, seizures, depression, and cognitive changes in memory. Multiple sclerosis has no cure, but the current treatment involves a combination of therapies and medications to prevent disease progression and manage symptoms.

What can be done for Multiple Sclerosis?

Cognitive rehabilitation therapy has been studied in different patient populations. For multiple sclerosis, this kind of therapy has been shown to be effective in enhancing cognitive performance in individuals living with multiple sclerosis. Learn about how HappyNeuron Pro can be used to help patients living with multiple sclerosis improve their cognitive functioning.


The cause of MS is still unknown. Researchers are looking at the influence of genetic mutations and environmental factors as contributors. They currently know that MS may debilitate motor skills and cognitive functions as the disease progresses. Patients may experience fatigue, speech problems, depression, and cognitive function. Areas affected by MS include processing speedmemoryvisual attention, and visuospatial skills. Cognitive decline is experienced by at least 50% of patients, with severity increasing as the disease progresses.
