Gray matter networks and cognitive impairment in multiple sclerosis

January 18, 2018 (Multiple Sclerosis Journal)

The objective of this study was to investigate whether single-subject gray matter network properties are related to impaired cognition in MS.

One way to understand and describe patterns of gray matter morphology is to represent them as a network. Previous studies show that gray matter networks are abnormal in several neurological and psychiatric diseases such as Alzheimers and Schizophrenia. This study seeks to understand single-subject gray matter networks in Multiple Sclerosis and the association with cognitive dysfunction.
