Brain chip

MS news is thin on the ground and August / September are quiet months before the ECTRIMS and ACRIMS (Oct) conferences take place and new research / trial results are released.

Technological advances continue - the BBC website reported today that scientists were developing a retina which could be attached to the optic nerves and give people back their site (probably within ten years). Another advance reported today was a brain chip which would help ...

Geographic spread

It has been suggested by some that MS may have come from Scandinavia and that's why countries where the Vikings invaded have higher rates e.g. Scotland, Ireland. When I met with Prof Ebers who is looking at MS genes he said this was a bit fanciful and said that MS also occurs in countries such as India.
