The MS Family Study

Researchers from the Menzies Institute for Medical Research are seeking participants who come from families with multiple relatives affected by multiple sclerosis (MS). By analysing the genetic code of such families, the researchers want to better understand the inherited risk of MS.

Testing Brain-Computer Interfaces for Individuals with Multiple Sclerosis

Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) use sensors to record brain activity and translate that activity into user-intended commands, which can be used to control a device such as your phone or computer. We are investigating how the brain controls movements and how multiple sclerosis may affect the brain’s activity when thinking about movement. This research could provide […]

Anxiety in Multiple Sclerosis

We are interested in identifying psychological factors that contribute to the development and maintenance of anxiety in individuals with MS. We are also interested in comparing these factors to those without an illness. Participants will be requested to fill out an online questionnaire at three different time points. Time 1: Fill out an ~30min questionnaire. […]

Is muscle fatigue in Multiple Sclerosis exacerbated with exercise?

We are looking to recruit adults aged 30-65 who have relapsing-remitting Multiple Sclerosis. This project will determine components of MS fatigue and how they relate to standard tests. Participants will be asked to attend our laboratory on the Griffith University Gold Coast campus. Testing sessions will take about two and a half hours of your […]

Understanding the cognitive profile in MS compared to MS and migraine

The research project aims to understand the impact that MS or MS with migraine has on thinking skills such as concentration and memory, because we know that cognitive difficulties can have a significant effect on day-to-day life. The study involves you coming into the Alfred Centre for a 1-1.5 hour appointment, during which we will […]
