New summaries of research articles
We are continuing to gather evidence relating to brain health in MS, and this month we highlight summaries of two recently published papers.
Cognitive rehabilitation could improve brain function
Brain training or ‘cognitive rehabilitation’ may have the potential to improve brain function in people with MS, suggest the authors of a new small-scale study.

Lead author Jodi Haartsen spent time at our MS Brain Health stand to meet some of the 2,200 healthcare professionals, researchers, pharmacists and people who attended the event.
