MS-FIN: The Role of Interoception in Multiple Sclerosis Fatigue
How is fatigue is represented in the brain? Are the neural pathways informing the brain about the body different in people with multiple sclerosis who experience fatigue? These questions are addressed by MS-FIN - a study on the neural basis of fatigue in multiple sclerosis.

Taking part in the study:
If you have relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (with or without fatigue) and would like to take part in the study, please contact us! Where does the study take place?The study will take place at the Clinical Imaging Sciences Centre, on the University of Sussex campus, Brighton, BN19RR
What would I have to do, once in the study?
- Will be invited to two visits, lasting about 1.5 hours each (2 weeks apart from each other)
- Will have MRI, mental tasks and questionnaires
What new evidence will the study bring?
The study will bring new understanding into the mechanisms of fatigue in MS. This knowledge could be used in future research aimed at finding effective treatments for MS fatigue.
