In relation to the central role of future-oriented mental time travel (FMTT) in everyday life functioning, a recent and growing interest in the study of FMTT in clinical conditions has been observed. This chapter provides an overview of the findings obtained in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients at both behavioral and neuroimaging levels. In particular, the frontal dysexecutive origin of FMTT impairment in MS patients is discussed, in light of the neuropsychological profile and the structural and functional brain changes observed in MS patients. Based on these findings, the possibility to improve FMTT functioning in MS patients is also developed in this chapter. The authors present converging evidence of clinical, structural, and functional changes associated with cognitive rehabilitation and FMTT improvement in MS patients.
