Abstract

To describe differences in cerebral glucose metabolism between frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) and Alzheimer's disease (AD). 14 patients with FTLD (7 f/7 m, mean age 60.1 years) and 14 patients with AD (7 f/7 m, mean age 59.5 years) were examined.

Alzheimer's Disease: Neuroimaging

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disease. Here is the latest research on neuroimaging modalities, including magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography, in AD.

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.

Neuroimaging

Neuroimaging is a useful tool for studying brain function as well as for diagnosis of diseases and injuries to the brain. Follow this feed to stay up to date.

Positron Emission Tomography: Brain

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a type of imaging that allows visualization of the brain functioning. A radioactive tracer is injected into the bloodstream allowing the activity of the organ to be visualized. PET imaging for the brain is useful to see if there is disease or injury in the brain. Here is the latest research on PET and the brain.

Frontotemporal Dementia

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.

Paranoid Disorders

Paranoid disorders are psychiatric disorders with the suspicion and belief that others are plotting against them, leading to mistrust of others. These symptoms of paranoia can be seen in other psychiatric disorders including dementia and schizophrenia. Here is the latest research on paranoid disorders.
