Team G News:MSers are Teachers

Anonymous, Stern EB (Editor). A Mind "Surrounded by a Moat": A First-person Account of Cognitive Impairment in Multiple Sclerosis. Cogn Behav Neurol 2011 Nov. [Epub]

This is a first-person account of the cognitive impairments-in speaking, writing, and thinking-caused by multiple sclerosis in a professional writer. The MSers explains how she has worked around her deficits in rebuilding her life over the 18 years since her diagnosis. Her personal account is woven together with her clinical history, including her neuropsychological testing and magnetic resonance imaging results.

Although one can often read of experiences of MS on the web, few of them will reach the academic literature. Whilst I have yet to get my hands on this article, we agree that MSers have a lot they can teach us. Did you know that we have many wonderful Expert MSers who teach on a number of courses on MS, organised by Prof G. They are an important part of the teaching activites of Team G.

Marlo is one of our Educators

So when Prof G gives you an oppertunity to "walk the talk" he means it!

    Edgar Allan Poe called “ratiocination a process where ”Everything can be known if you look long and hard enough."

    MS can be solved if we work at it.

    Re 'she has worked around her deficits in rebuilding her life over the 18 years since her diagnosis': Everybody does not have the temperament to do this. I think that has to be inborn.
