Diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis: 2010 Revisions to the McDonald criteria
These revisions simplify the McDonald Criteria, preserve their diagnostic sensitivity and specificity, address their applicability across populations, and may allow earlier diagnosis and more uniform and widespread use.
Recommended diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis: Guidelines from the international panel on the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis
The revised criteria facilitate the diagnosis of MS in patients with a variety of presentations, including “monosymptomatic” disease suggestive of MS, disease with a typical relapsing‐remitting course, and disease with insidious progression, without clear attacks and remissions.
Diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis: 2005 revisions to the “McDonald Criteria”
New evidence and consensus now strengthen the role of these criteria in the multiple sclerosis diagnostic workup to demonstrate dissemination of lesions in time, to clarify the use of spinal cord lesions, and to simplify diagnosis of primary progressive disease.
Non-invasive mapping of connections between human thalamus and cortex using diffusion imaging
The results provide the first quantitative demonstration of reliable inference of anatomical connectivity between human gray matter structures using diffusion data and the first connectivity-based segmentation of gray matter.
Diagnosis of multiple sclerosis: 2017 revisions of the McDonald criteria
Defining the clinical course of multiple sclerosis
Refined descriptors that include consideration of disease activity (based on clinical relapse rate and imaging findings) and disease progression are proposed and strategies for future research to better define phenotypes are outlined.
Development of a multiple sclerosis functional composite as a clinical trial outcome measure.
A composite measure encompassing the major clinical dimensions of arm, leg and cognitive function was identified and termed the multiple sclerosis functional composite (MSFC), suggesting that the MSFC is more sensitive to change than the EDSS.
Atlas of Multiple Sclerosis 2013: A growing global problem with widespread inequity
Important updates are outlined in the recently launched Atlas of MS 2013: Mapping Multiple Sclerosis around the World, which has information from 112 countries.
Neural correlates of motor recovery after stroke: a longitudinal fMRI study.

The results further the understanding of the recovery process by demonstrating for the first time a clear temporal relationship between recovery and task-related activation of the motor system after stroke.

The 12-Item MS Walking Scale satisfies standard criteria as a reliable and valid patient-based measure of the impact of MS on walking and was more responsive than other walking-based scales.
