Dr. Strober’s primary research interests consist of the phenomenological experience of secondary factors associated with MS and other neurological conditions (e.g., depression, fatigue, sleep disturbance, personality changes); the influence of secondary factors on cognitive functioning, psychological well-being, and quality of life; identification of person-specific factors accountable for various outcomes following illness or injury; and the development of disease-specific measures of secondary factors (i.e., depression).
