Abstract

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a progressive neurodegenerative condition. There isn’t any effective strategy for the remission of MS signs and currently applied options have merely a relieving effect on the symptoms. Achieving new treatment strategies to overcome MS symptoms has always been among the researchers’ priorities. The present paper aims to introduce a mathematical modeling of postural tremor in subjects with MS to study the effect of electric stimulations (Trans cranial Magnetic Stimulation and Deep Brain Stimulation) on MS motor symptoms.
