Drs. DeLuca and Sandroff are co-editors of this new text detailing the latest approaches to cognitive rehabilitative care for MS
East Hanover, NJ. June 26, 2018. Multiple sclerosis, the most common neurological disease among people of working age, can manifest with a wide array of physical and cognitive signs and symptoms. While cognitive deficits are common and can have significant impact on quality of life, there is a dearth of information on these effects for professionals who care for individuals with MS. This new release provides the latest insights into cognitive complications and the implications for behavior and lifestyle.
Released by the American Psychological Association via APA Books, “Cognition and Behavior in Multiple Sclerosis” provides a comprehensive analysis of these effects on behavior, employment-related issues, and the development of neuropsychiatric disorders. The text, which contains 15 chapters by international experts, is edited by neuropsychologists John Deluca, PhD, senior vice president of research and training at Kessler Foundation and Brian M. Sandroff, PhD, assistant professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
“Research is revealing new ways to treat individuals with MS so they can continue to participate fully in family life, the workplace and the community,” said Dr. DeLuca. “This text details the scope of cognitive issues encountered in MS, and focuses on guiding professionals to consider the latest scientific knowledge in their protocols for cognitive rehabilitation, including neuroimaging, exercise, medication, and mobile technologies. By reducing the burden on individuals and caregivers, we can begin to address the broader social impact of MS.”
