Kessler Foundation scientist receives National MS Society grant for new memory study
Date:3/25/2013

West Orange, NJ. March 25, 2013. The National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society awarded Nancy Chiaravalloti, Ph.D., a $43,494 grant to study the efficacy of a new treatment for memory loss in MS. Dr. Chiaravalloti, PhD, director of Neuropsychology and Neuroscience Research at Kessler Foundation, is an expert in cognitive rehabilitation research in traumatic brain injury and MS. This one-year pilot project is titled, "Stylistic Memory Enhancement" (NMSS grant #GR391).

"Development of new strategies to improve memory in individuals with MS is an important area of research at Kessler Foundation," said John DeLuca, PhD, VP of Research & Training. Although cognitive symptoms such as memory loss are experienced by up to two-thirds of patients, relatively little research has been conducted in cognitive function in persons with MS."

Dr. Chiaravalloti's study will evaluate the clinical efficacy of a new memory treatment program aimed at improving learning and memory of information that patients need on a daily basis. The study involves an 8-session treatment program. The memory skills of participants will be tested before and after treatment. "If effective, this treatment could have a positive impact on the everyday cognitive functioning and overall quality of life of persons with MS," said Dr. Chiaravalloti.
