The article offers information on several multiple sclerosis (MS) projects funded by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) that are concern on the psychological impact of MS to patients. The research of Nancy Sicotte and colleagues reveals findings on the origin of MS depression. The study of Christopher Christodolou shows that person with negative affect is more potential for cognitive problems. It includes several functions affected by MS such as executive and memory functions.
