Like other symptoms of MS, cognitive symptoms vary greatly from person to person. The MS Society will be running a webinar tore
It will take place online on Thursday 16 September at 7pm.
Not everyone who has MS will experience problems with memory and thinking, but mild difficulties are common. Cognition refers to memory and thinking. Cognitive skills vary naturally in different people – we all have different strengths and weaknesses. Our cognitive powers are considered to be normal if our skills allow us to cope adequately with everyday life.
With the help of Professor Jonathan Evans from the Institute of Health and Wellbeing at Glasgow University, the MS Society will explore how our cognitive powers might be affected by MS and how we can harness them for our benefit.
Jon has conducted and published extensive research into the relationship between cognitive impairments and physiological change. He will also be joined by a panel of volunteer experts who will share their own experience of managing their MS.
You can ask any questions you have about cognition and MS at the event or, if you prefer, you can submit a question beforehand when you register for a place.
