Profil émotionnel et cognitif au début de la sclérose en plaques :
effets différentiels des émotions sur les performances cognitives

Abstract : This study explores the emotional and cognitive functioning as well as the emotion-cognition relationships in 40 patients suffering from multiple sclerosis (MS) for ≤ 5 years. Emotions are considered in terms of individual's emotional characteristics, emotional states as well as components of cognitive tasks. They are assessed using french adaptations of validated tools. Multiple sclerosis patients are compared to a matched group of healthy controls. The results highlight the presence of early emotional and cognitive disorders in multiple sclerosis. Patient management requires a specialized and multidisciplinary approach. The study, also, indicates that emotions have differential effects on cognitive performances, depending on both individual's emotional characteristics and nature of the task. The present approach could be useful in order to explore emotion-cognition relationships within the framework of other neurological diseases.
