Abstract

Background: We compared two brief neuropsychological batteries devised to assess people with multiple sclerosis (MS) and used them to assess the relationship between cognitive impairment and clinical characteristics. Methods: We administered either the Brief Repeatable Battery of Neuropsychological Tests (BRBNT) or the Screening Examination for Cognitive Impairment (SEFCI) to 213 consecutive MS outpatients and 213 individually matched controls. Results: Administration times were longer for BRBNT than SEFCI, for MS and controls (p=0.001). People with MS had lower scores in all individual tests than controls (p
