Description

Summary

The goal is to investigate the effects of non-invasive transcranial electrical stimulation on cognition in MS.

Official Title

Effects of Non-invasive Transcranial Electrical Stimulation on Cognition in Patients With Multiple Sclerosis

Details

The participants' baseline cognitive function will be assessed with a tablet-based, videogame-like software specifically designed as a medical device to test and train cognitive function for populations with cognitive disorders. After baseline test assessment, participants will receive stimulation while playing the training version of the software. After the stimulation, cognitive performance will be evaluated again with the testing version. Investigators will assess changes in cognitive performance associated with stimulation.
