CHAPTER 7

Multiple Sclerosis

Neurodegenerative diseases can often affect cognitive function (e.g. MCI, Alzheimer’s disease), motor function (Parkinson’s disease) or various combinations of both. In this chapter we describe multiple sclerosis (MS), the prototype inflammatory autoimmune disorder of the central nervous system, which causes demyelination of the central nervous system, resulting in progressive loss of motor and sensory function.
