The National Multiple Sclerosis Society has awarded Dr. Bart Rypma, an associate professor at the Center for BrainHealth at the University of Texas at Dallas, a more than $490,000 grant to study how changes in blood flow in the brain might affect cognition in people with multiple sclerosis (MS).
The grant builds on previous research by Dr. Rypma into dysfunctions in brain networks and the cognitive effects on MS. In the new project, 80 MS patients will undergo structural and functional brain imaging and neuropsychological evaluation, with researchers collecting specific measurements using the latest  imaging techniques, calibrated functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and diffusion kurtosis imaging.

According to a press release, the UT study will be the first to collect such measures in a single MS patient group using these imaging tools.
