Computerised reaction time testing:
The Information Processing Speed in MS Study (IPSiMS)
The Information Processing Speed in MS Study is now closed to recruitment
What is the IPSiMS Study?
The Information Processing Speed Study aims to use computerised reaction time tests to compare information processing speed differences between people with MS and healthy volunteers.
Why is it important?
Many people with MS report feeling mentally slowed down and find it difficult to concentrate. This leads to problems with engaging in various activities at home and at work.
What could we learn?
With this new study we aim to determine the extent to which information processing speed influences correct decision making. This will help us better understand the mechanisms causing concentration difficulties in MS.
