MS affects moral cognition

US researchers asked participants to consider people in scenarios including murder and manslaughter to test what they refer to as moral cognition. They found that people with MS were more likely to judge situations harshly and to believe that other people would share their opinions. The researchers suggest that this is linked to living with the stress of a long-term condition.
