Abstract

BACKGROUND: Monitoring and screening of cognitive function in the ambulatory setting requires simple, brief cognitive tests that are reproducible. MSReactor (MSR) is a web-based platform that screens psychomotor (processing) speed, attention and working memory using a game-like interface. The Processing Speed Test (PST) is a validated computerized version of the Symbol Digit Modalities test (SDMT) and component of the Multiple Sclerosis Performance Test (MSPT). OBJECTIVE: To determine the baseline and 6-month predictive correlations between the MSReactor computerised cognitive battery and the PST. METHODS: Prospectively enrolled relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) patients complete..
