  1. Abbreviations:EDSS Expanded Disability Status Scale; FHR Frontal horn ratio (cm); GDT Game-of-Dice Task; ICR Intercaudate ratio (cm); TVR Third ventricle ratio (cm).
  2. a Partial correlations with disease duration and EDSS controlled for age, gender, scan site, and scanner model (df = 25). Partial correlations with cognitive composite scores and GDT-scores additionally controlled for time between MR scan and test date (df = 24).
  3. b p < 0.05, corrected by False-Discovery Rate [42].
