Multiple Sclerosis Research
Researchers at Kessler Foundation study ways of managing the cognitive, physical, and emotional symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis.
Using fMRI to Study Cognitive Fatigue in MS (with Zeposia®)
Study investigates the effect of disease-modifying medications, specifically Zeposia®, on cognitive fatigue in multiple sclerosis. Cognitive fatigue is the kind of fatigue that occurs after intense mental concentration, such as after a session of problem-solving.
Using fMRI to Study Cognitive Fatigue in MS (with Ocrevus®)
Study investigates the effect of disease-modifying medications, specifically Ocrevus® on cognitive fatigue in multiple sclerosis (MS). Cognitive fatigue is the kind of fatigue that occurs after intense mental concentration, such as after a session of problem-solving.
Home-Based Walking Exercise for Cognition in Adults with Multiple Sclerosis
This study compares the effects of two, home-based, walking programs on thinking ability in adults with MS. One program involves 2-3 days per week of light-to-moderate intensity walking, and the other program involves 3-5 days per week of moderate-to-vigorous intensity exercise.
Improving Psychological Wellbeing in Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
This study seeks to determine if an intervention aimed to treat depression and anxiety, may improve psychological wellbeing, coping, and quality of life in people with MS.
Reinventing Yourself with Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
The symptoms and consequences of multiple sclerosis (MS) place significant demands on individuals’ ability to cope and manage the illness and live fulfilling lives.
Brain and Heart Health in Middle-Aged People with Multiple Sclerosis
Heart health, as measured by cardiovascular risk factors (i.e., high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, being overweight, sitting most of the day, etc.), can impact the brain and the aging process in middle-aged people with MS.
Biomarker for Cognitive Fatigue in MS Using fMRI
Investigates the effectiveness of Tysabri (Natalizumab) on cognitive fatigue in people with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). Cognitive fatigue is the kind of fatigue that occurs after intense mental concentration, such as after a session of problem-solving.
Exercise and Cognition in MS
Understanding and Creating New Memories
The purpose of this research study is to investigate how new information is strengthened in the memory of people with TBI or MS. Researchers want to understand what happens in the brain after a person learns new information.
Robotic Exoskeleton Therapy on Mobility and Cognition in MS
This study examines the usefulness of a wearable robotic exoskeleton device to improve learning, memory, and walking in people with MS.
Improving Memory and Learning in MS
This study investigates the effectiveness of memory techniques in people with Multiple Sclerosis.
Processing Speed and Eye Movements
The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between eye movements and the speed someone is able to process information.
