Effects of Cycling with Virtual Reality on Processing Speed in Multiple Sclerosis

Study investigates how combining cycling exercise with virtual reality can improve thinking speed in people with multiple sclerosis who demonstrate mobility disability. We will do this by measuring thinking speed before and after a single session of cycling under three different conditions: No virtual reality, virtual reality to view only, and virtual reality with a thinking task included.
