Parkinsonian motor features distinguish the agrammatic from logopenic variant of primary progressive aphasia

Parkinsonism & Related Disorders

May 12, 2012

Jonathan Graff-RadfordKeith A Josephs

Abstract

Few studies have assessed parkinsonian motor features across variants of primary progressive aphasia (PPA). Our objective was to compare degree of parkinsonian motor features between two PPA variants. Parkinsonian motor features were assessed with the unified Parkinson's disease rating ...read more

Aphasia

Aphasia affects the ability to process language, including formulation and comprehension of language and speech, as well as the ability to read or write. Here is the latest research on aphasia.

Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) is a rare neurodegenerative disorder that affects movement, gait, balance, and speech. Discover the latest research on PSP here.

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.

Dyskinesia

Dyskinesia are a category of movement disorders characterized by involuntary muscle movements. They can be medication-induced, chronic, or non-motor in nature. Here is the latest research.

Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's Disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by loss of muscle control, including trembling of the limbs and impaired balance. Here is the latest research.

Corticobasal Degeneration

Corticobasal Degeneration (CBD)is a rare, neurodegenerative disease of the cerebral cortex and the basal ganglia, characterized by movement disorders. Discover the latest research on CBD here.

Multiple System Atrophy

Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) is a rare neurodegenerative disorder which affects the body’s autonomic functions, including breathing and muscle control. Discover the latest research on MSA here.

Lewy Body Disease

Lewy Body Disease, associated with abnormal deposits of proteins like alpha-synuclein in the brain, causes a decline in mental abilities. Here is the latest on this progressive neurological disorder.

Synucleinopathies

Synucleinopathies are neurodegenerative diseases characterized by accumulation of alpha-synuclein protein aggregates in neurons and glial cells. Discover the latest research on synucleinopathies here.

Neurocognition and Behaviour

This feed focuses on neurobehavioral manifestations, neurocognitive development, and cognition disorders. Here is the latest research.

Diffuse Neurofibrillary Tangles with Calcification

Diffuse Neurofibrillary Tangles with Calcification (DNTC) is a rare form of presenile dementia. Here is the latest research.

Parkinson's Disease: Biomarkers

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that affects movement. This feed focuses on genomic and drug-response biomarkers in Parkinson’s disease.

Basal Forebrain- Circuits

Basal forebrain is a region in the brain important for production of acetylcholine and is the major cholinergic output of the CNS. Discover the latest research on circuits in the basal forebrain 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.

Neuronal and Network Dysfunction In Neurodegeneration

This feed focuses on neuronal and network dysfunction in neurodegenerative disorders and the effects of tauopathies on synapses and memory.

Tauopathies

Tauopathies are neurodegenerative disorders caused due to misfolding and aggregation of the tau protein in neurofibrillary tangles in the brain. Discover the latest research on tauopathies here.

Movement Disorders

Movement disorders are a group of nervous system disorders that increase or decrease voluntary or involuntary movements. Here is the latest research on genetic and environmental factors, as well as mechanisms that underlie movement disorders.

Language Networks

Here is the latest research on genetic and neural networks that affect language development, comprehension, and articulation, and are implicated in language disorders such as dyslexia.
