OBJECTIVE This study used reaction time (RT) as an objective marker of cognitive fatigue and fatigability in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). METHOD RT was measured in fifteen healthy controls and in thirty MS patients with cognitive fatigue identified with the Fatigue Scale for Motor and Cognitive Function (FSMC). Secondary fatigue was excluded(More)
The objective of the study was to investigate whether cognitive fatigue in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) is a spontaneous phenomenon or whether it can be provoked or exacerbated through cognitive effort and motor exercise. Thirty two patients with definite MS and cognitive fatigue according to the Fatigue Scale for Motor and Cognitive Functions(More)
To provide referential normative data on simple tasks dealing with number processing and calculation which could be used in clinical investigations, 551 normal volunteers aged between 18 and 69 years from France and Belgium (n = 180). Italy (n = 212) and Germany (n = 159). performed the 31 tasks which constitute the EC301 calculation and number processing(More)
OBJECTIVE Cognitive impairment is a common symptom of multiple sclerosis (MS). The present study aimed to assess fatigue-related diurnal variations of cognitive performance in MS patients. METHOD Subjective cognitive fatigue and cognitive performance in three reaction time tasks differing in cognitive demands (alertness, Go/NoGo, divided attention) was(More)
PURPOSE The loss of calculation skills due to brain lesions leads to a major reduction in the quality of life and is often associated with difficulties of returning to work and a normal life. Very little is known about the neural mechanisms underlying performance improvement due to calculation training during rehabilitation. The current study investigates(More)
Purpose Despite existing rehabilitation services, return to work (RTW) rates among stroke survivors are quite low. An increased number of qualitative studies have been conducted to identify facilitators and barriers to RTW after stroke and to derive recommendations for future interventions. The aim of our study was to carry out a meta-synthesis of those(More)
OBJECTIVES Fatigue is typically associated with multiple sclerosis (MS), but recent studies suggest that it is also a problem for patients with stroke. While a direct comparison of fatigue in, e.g., Stroke and MS is desirable, it is presently not easily possible because of different definitions and assessment tools used for the two conditions. In the(More)
Empirical research on the relationship between linguistic and numerical processing revealed inconsistent results for different levels of cognitive processing (e.g., lexical, semantic) as well as different stimulus materials (e.g., Arabic digits, number words, letters, non-number words). Information of dissociation patterns in aphasic patients was used in(More)
