Information-processing speed is the primary deficit underlying the poor performance of multiple sclerosis patients in the Paced Auditory Serial Addition Test (PASAT)

C. Forn, A. Belenguer, M. A. Parcet-Ibars, C. Ávila
2008 Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology  
PASAT execution was associated with scores of the Digit Backward test, Symbol Digit Modality Test (SDMT), and measures of working memory and information-processing speed.  ...  Our results suggest that reduced information-processing speed (and not working memory) is the primary alteration underlying the lower scores in the PASAT task (and probably other cognitive deficits) that  ...  This research was supported by Grant BSO2002-00631 awarded to Cristina Forn and Grant PI021756 from the Spanish Ministry of Public Health.  ...
