Running Head: Multiple Sclerosis Multiple sclerosis is a chronic autoimmune disease, widely affecting the movement, sensations, and body movement. This is caused by destruction of the myelin sheath that is the insulation covering the nerve fibers or neurons that fire impulses across your brain in the central nervous system. Multiple sclerosis is a complicated and very progressive neurological disease which usually attacks discretely, making it known as a clinically isolated syndrome (CIS). This effects the central nervous system (CNS), which contains the brain and all of its complex structures, as well as the spinal cord. Seeing how multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease, which causes the body to attack its own immune system, it is especially dangerous. For reasons that are still unknown, immune cells called lymphocytes, brutally attack and completely destroy the myelin sheath that cover the myelin sheath as previously stated.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
