Objective:To examine whether processing speed or working memory is the primary information processing deficit in persons with MS.
Setting:Hospital-based specialty clinic.
Participants:215 adults with clinically definite MS.
Results:Deficits in Processing Speed were much more common than Working Memory in all comparisons. This was observed for both relapsing remitting (RRMS) and secondary progressive MS (SPMS) subjects, but accentuated in the latter group.
Conclusions:Results strongly suggest that the primary information processing deficit in persons with MS is in speed of processing.
