Our Clinical research department is currently conducting 22 research studies. One of which is the Wilkens study. This study is looking to compare the effectiveness and accuracy of NeuroTrax testing with the standard neuropsychological battery testing. Our department is currently looking for 50 patients with relapsing remitting Multiple Sclerosis to participate in this study. Participants should meet the following criteria:
- Be between the ages of 25-55
- Corrected vision must be no worse than 20/50
- Participants must have at least 10 years of education
- Participants must be capable of writing and pressing the buttons on a computer mouse
- History of psychosis or severe mental illness other than mild to moderate depression
- Current alcohol/substance abuse.
- Those taking medications with potential adverse CNS effects.
Participants complete the screening visit, if they qualify they will come back for testing once a year for three years. The testing involves taking a number of paper/pencil, verbal, and computer tests designed to assess ones thinking. The visits can take anywhere from 2 to 3 hours. Those who are admitted into the study will modestly compensated for their time and participation in the study.
