Seeking the Relationship Between Brain Structure and Cognitive Performance in Elderly People with MS
BNAC researchers led by Dejan Jakimovski, M.D. Ph.D., have been awarded a pilot research grant by the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) to determine which brain structures are responsible for specific types of cognitive decline in 100 aging MS patients. The results could open the door for researchers to monitor the most clinically relevant brain regions and potentially predict an individual patient’s risk for cognitive decline as well as appropriate treatment.
As new disease-modifying therapies extend the lives of people with multiple sclerosis by as many as 20 years or more, it becomes increasingly important to understand the causes of cognitive decline experienced by a growing percent of people with MS.

Brain atrophy and lesion burden are associated with disability progression in a multiple sclerosis real-world dataset using only T2-FLAIR. Using the largest MRI-realworld multiple sclerosis dataset studied to date, the NeuroSTREAM-MSBase study, recently published in Neurogimage/Clinical, is the fruition of a collaboration between Sydney Neuroimaging Analysis Centre, Buffalo Neuroimaging Analysis Center (BNAC), MSBase and clinicians across the globe.
We are pleased to present our BNAC Newsletter, a periodic publication about the work of our Center. This issue includes updates about our latest research, the academic and educational achievements of our staff, and information about our work as a core laboratory providing analysis services around the world.
