AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

How does having lesions in the frontal lobe of the brain affect the mental health of a Multiple Sclerosis patient?

MRI studies would be performed with each MS flare and annually. Patients with lesions in their frontal lobe would complete a questionnaire regarding their mental and emotional state. Caregivers would also complete the questionnaire with their observations of the MS patient. We would expect to see mood disorders and/or depression in MS patients who have lesions in their frontal lobe. Data would be collected for 5 years.

The remaining questions allow you to outline in more detail the information needed to address your research question. The series of questions allow up to five entries. If you have more than five entries, please try to prioritize them and enter the remainder in the final field. When done, click Submit at the bottom. No
