Subjective Report, Objective Neurocognitive Performance, and "Invisible Symptoms" in Multiple Sclerosis

CONCLUSIONS: Cognitive fatigue may skew one's perception of their cognition, though it is not associated with objective impairment. However, co-occurring depression and anxiety were associated with greater variability which is a marker of poorer neurocognitive integrity. Our findings highlight the importance of accounting for depression, anxiety, and cognitive fatigue in PwMS, given that they are all potentially modifiable factors.PMID:36321349 | DOI:10.1093/arclin/acac086
