Abstract

Few studies have applied multiple imaging modalities to examine cognitive correlates of white matter. We examined the utility of T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) -derived white matter hyperintensities (WMH) and diffusion tensor imaging-derived fractional anisotropy (FA) to p...read more

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.

Nocturnal Paroxysmal Dystonia

Nocturnal paroxysmal dystonia is the term used to describe motor attacks characterized by complex behavior, with dystonic-dyskinetic or ballic movements arising from non-REM sleep. Here is the latest research.

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.

Microscopic Polyangiitis

Microscopic polyangiitis is a primary systemic vasculitis of small- and some medium-sized vessels. It is characterized by a tropism for kidneys and lungs, positive association with anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA), and a paucity of immunoglobulin deposits in vessel walls. Discover the latest research on microscopic polyangiitis here.

Cerebral Small Vessel Diseases

Cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD) includes several diseases affecting the small arteries, arterioles, venules, and capillaries of the brain, and refers to several pathological processes and etiologies. Discover the latest research on CSVD here.

Frontal Lobe Epilepsy

Frontal lobe epilepsy is characterized by brief, recurring seizures, often during sleep. Depending on the areas of the brain that are affected, these seizures may be asymptomatic or present with motor or verbal symptoms. Find the latest research on frontal lobe epilepsy here.

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.
