Abstract

Brainstem pathology is a hallmark feature of ALS, yet most imaging studies focus on cortical grey matter alterations and internal capsule white matter pathology. Brainstem imaging in ALS provides a unique opportunity to appraise descending motor tract degeneration and bulbar lower motor...read more

Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) refers to disorders caused by progressive neuronal loss in the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain. Here is the latest research on FTD and FTD-associated disorders.

Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration

Frontotemporal lobar degeneration or frontotemporal dementia refers to a group of uncommon disorders that occur as a result of progressive nerve cell loss in the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain. Here is the latest research.

ALS

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as motor neuron disease, is associated with the death of neurons that control voluntary muscles. Discover the latest research on ALS here.

Motor Neuron Disease

Motor neuron diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and spinal muscular atrophy are progressive neurodegenerative diseases that result in the death of motor neurons. Discover the latest research on motor neuron disease here.
