Trait Conscientiousness predicts rate of brain atrophy in multiple sclerosis.

Abstract
BACKGROUND:
Conscientiousness is a core personality trait with favorable prognosis in neuropsychiatric disease.
OBJECTIVE:
We aimed to determine whether baseline Conscientiousness predicts future brain atrophy in multiple sclerosis (MS) after accounting for demographic and basic clinical characteristics.
METHODS:
Trait Conscientiousness, clinical features, and Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) were obtained at baseline. Lateral ventricle volume (LVV) was measured longitudinally. In a retrospective general linear mixed effects model, data from 424 patients were analyzed (mean 6 time-points, up to 15 years).
RESULTS/CONCLUSION:
We observed significant age and Conscientiousness by time-from-baseline interactions indicating that younger age and higher Conscientiousness are associated with reduced progression of brain atrophy.
