  • Word-finding difficulty is a common problem in people with early multiple sclerosis and is linked to thinning of the left parietal cortex.

Why this matters

    These findings add to the growing evidence that prominent disease-related parietal atrophy that is linked to impaired language ability is a more common problem in multiple sclerosis than previously recognized.
