A novel method for the investigation of the neural underpinnings of performance on the Symbol Digit Modalities Test in Multiple Sclerosis
Participants with or without multiple sclerosis are needed for this research study on audio-visual cognition. Participants will be asked to complete some short questionnaires and cognitive tasks over the span of approximately 2-3 hours. All testing will be completed in one session at the University at Buffalo's Division of Cognitive and Behavioral Neurosciences Laboratories.
The Symbol Digit Modalities Test (SDMT) is a neuropsychological test of information processing speed (PS) that is used to assess cognitive impairment in Multiple Sclerosis (MS). This sensitive, well-validated test has become a standard outcome measure in MS research (enedict et al., 2017). However, there have been very few studies that have directly eamined brain function during SDMT performance.
Compensation may include cash, checks, gift cards, debit cards, or incentives like gift baskets, technology items, or merchandise.
