Cartoon characters in a life drawing art class. Two characters are working at easels while one 'naked' character poses - there is a 'censored' sign over his 'sensitive areas.The MS brain is like a rapidly ageing brain – Thankfully there are factors that may protect against this process.

In a way, a loss of cognitive function in MS is like the brain is ageing too quickly. The ageing human brain typically has a small amount of brain ‘atrophy’ or wasting each year, but in MS that process can take place more rapidly. That said, it’s not all cut and dried. If loss of cognitive function happens in MS, it usually progresses slowly. There is also some evidence that people who have built up some ‘cognitive reserve’ through keeping their brains ticking along on physical and social activity and learning may be more protected from losing cognitive function in MS.
