High degree of dilated Virchow-Robin spaces on MRI is associated with increased risk of dementia

Journal of Alzheimer's Disease : JAD

Yicheng ZhuChristophe Tzourio

Abstract

The clinical significance of dilated Virchow-Robin spaces (dVRS) remains unclear and their impact on cognitive performances has only been reported in small sample studies. Our aim was to assess the association between severity of dVRS and risk of incident dementia and cognitive decline ...read more

Canavan Disease

Canavan disease is an autosomal recessive degenerative disorder that causes progressive damage to nerve cells in the brain, and is one of the most common degenerative cerebral diseases of infancy. Discover the latest research on Canavan disease here.

Alzheimer's Disease: RNA Regulation

RNA regulation involves several mechanisms that are used by cells to decreases or increase the production of RNA. Issues with RNA regulation are associated with Alzheimer's Disease (AD). Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to RNA regulation and this disease.

Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML)

Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML) occurs due to JC virus infection. While most adults are infected, PML emerges in individuals with weakened immune systems. Here is the latest on PML.

Basal ganglia cerebrovascular disease is a condition where the blood vessels in the basal ganglia are damaged or malfunction. Discover the latest research on basal ganglia cerebrovascular disease here.

Basal Ganglia

Basal Ganglia are a group of subcortical nuclei in the brain associated with control of voluntary motor movements, procedural and habit learning, emotion, and cognition. Here is the latest research.

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.
