Multiple Sclerosis is a debilitating neurological disease which affects many young adults. Often thought of as a disease that causes physical disabilities, the impact that cognitive symptoms have on patients has only recently been acknowledged. The research presented in this thesis examined cognitive symptoms in multiple sclerosis. Specifically, the thesis focused on one cognitive ability known as inhibitory control. The aim of the thesis was to better understand this cognitive symptom, with a view to informing the development of therapeutic interventions which may result in improved quality of life for patients.
