Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Aim: The presence of neuropsychiatric disorders in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) has been recognized since Charcot first described the disease and reported at rates reaching 60%. However, knowledge about impulsivity which can significantly affect the quality of life of patients and their relatives is limited. In this study, we aimed to determine whether there is a relationship between MS and impulsivity.
Material and Methods: MS patients and healthy controls were included in this paired case-control study. The clinical (disability rate, duration of disease, clinical course) of MS patients and demographics (age, gender, income status, marital status, educational status) characteristics of the whole population were questioned. Beck depression scale and Barrat's impulsivity scale were applied to all participants. The patient and control groups were compared in terms of impulsivity. Considering that depression is frequently observed in MS patients and depression may affect impulsivity, the groups were compared again with covariance analysis.
Results: The study included 60 MS patients of whom 41 was female and 51 healthy controls of whom 40 was female. Cognitive impulsivity was significantly higher in the MS group, and the MS group was significantly depressive than the controls. This difference in cognitive impulsivity continued after the effect of depression stabilized.
Conclusion: Impulsivity was significantly higher in MS patients than in normal controls. Approaches that take into account impulsivity may be useful in the treatment of MS.

Keywords: Multiple sclerosis; impulsivity; neuropsychiatric symptom
