Cognitive Test in Healthy Adults and Multiple Sclerosis Patients
The Auditory Test of Cognitive Processing Speed (ATOPS): Testing a novel tool to assess cognition in People with Multiple Sclerosis
Participants will be asked questions about a new cognitive processing test (how fast they can think). This study involves a single visit which takes about 20-minutes at the Conventus Medical Center in Buffalo. 50 multiple sclerosis patients and 50 healthy people will be enrolled.
1) To gather baseline and normative data so that we may assess the acceptability and known-groups validity of ATOPS.
2) Identify ways in which the ATOPS can be refined as well as identifying any sub-scores that may best differentiate the groups.
3) Assess the concurrent validity of ATOPS via its correlation with performance on SDMT, a well established test of cognitive processing speed.
