Biomarker for Cognitive Fatigue in MS Using fMRI
The purpose of this research is to investigate the effectiveness of Tysabri (Natalizumab) on cognitive fatigue in people with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS).
Note*** Participants with RRMS must be patients at RWJ Barnabas Health.
Exercise and Cognition in MS
Feedback and Cognitive Performance in MS
The purpose of this research study is to see if your performance in a computer game improves if you are provided feedback on correct responses.
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.
