- •Driving ability was evaluated using driving simulator and SDMT in MS patients (78/85).
- •MS patients are associated with cognitive decline even when motor disability is mild (85/85).
- •SDMT detects deteriorations of attention and information processing speed in MS (80/85).
- •This study revealed a relationship between driving abilities and SDMT scores (75/85).
- •Clinical evaluation using SDMT may help to make a decision on driving in MS (76/85).
