Brief Summary:
This study will assessed the level of consciousness of MS patients suffering of cognitive and motor disorders. Understanding the awareness of the disease is crucial to allow better management of these patients. It has been shown, for other neurological pathologies, that a lack of awareness of deficits leads to inefficient rehabilitation and a disorder of understanding the impact of deficits in daily activities. Metacognition could be altered with age, so we will include participants between 18 and 60 years old.

Condition or disease
Multiple Sclerosis

Detailed Description:

Subject who have to do neurological assessement by the Multiple sclerosis Functional Composite (MSFC) will be enrolled.

The patient will estimate the time to undergo the test. This time will be compared to the time really make by the patient to realise test.
