Abstract

This research program aims to study two disabling symptoms of multiple sclerosis namely upper limb shaking, or tremor, and memory dysfunction. The first project will develop a new treatment for MS arm tremor, Botulinum toxin injections, into routine clinical practice. The second project aims to make available a computerised test of memory that can be done in clinic waiting rooms or at home. This will help neurologists to rapidly pick up changes in memory in a person with MS and improve care.
