Abstract

Objective: In multiple sclerosis (MS); memory, attention, information processing speed, and executive function deficits associated with cortical demyelination and atrophy can be seen in the early phases. In essential tremor (ET) cognitive impairment associated with cerebral-thalamocortical pathway dysfunction, which is characterized by visuospatial functions, verbal memory, and executive functions were seen. We aimed to evaluate cognitive impairment in patients with MS and ET, and to compare the features of impairment.
