The article presents a study which investigates the relationship between total and regional corpus callosum atrophy, cognitive impairment, and fatigue in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. Details about the methods of the study are provided. The study suggests that atrophy is linked with cognitive impairment and fatigue, with the regional corpus callosum index indicating the associations as partially spatially segregated.
