Distribution of grey matter atrophy in Huntington’s disease patients: A combined ROI-based and voxel-based morphometric study
The striatum, a subcortical structure, is the principal target of the neurodegenerative process in Huntington's disease (HD). Expand

In vivo evidence for the selective subcortical degeneration in Huntington's disease
We characterise the preferential degeneration of connections in subcortical grey and white matter, degeneration which was likely to originate with the death of the striatal medium-size spiny neurons in the striatum. Expand

Severity of dysfluency correlates with basal ganglia activity in persistent developmental stuttering
Previous studies suggest that anatomical anomalies [Foundas, A. L., Bollich, A. M., Corey, D. M., Hurley, M., & Heilman, K. M. (2001). Anomalous anatomy of speech-language areas in adults withExpand

Different Neurophysiological Mechanisms Underlying Word and Rule Extraction from Speech
The initial process of identifying words from spoken language and the detection of more subtle regularities underlying their structure are mandatory processes for language acquisition. Little isExpand

Effect of fetal neural transplants in patients with Huntington's disease 6 years after surgery: a long-term follow-up study
BACKGROUND Although we have shown in three out of five patients with Huntington's disease that motor and cognitive improvements 2 years after intracerebral fetal neural grafts are correlated withExpand

Feeling of presence in Parkinson's disease
Background A feeling of presence (FP), that is, the vivid sensation that somebody (distinct from oneself) is present nearby, is commonly reported by patients with Parkinson's disease (PD), but itsExpand

Motor and cognitive improvements in patients with Huntington's disease after neural transplantation
BACKGROUND Huntington's disease is a neurodegenerative disease of genetic origin that mainly affects the striatum. It has severe motor and cognitive consequences and, up to now, no treatment. MotorExpand

Multiple-domain dissociation between impaired visual perception and preserved mental imagery in a patient with bilateral extrastriate lesions
A brain-damaged patient is described whose pattern of performance provides insight into both the functional mechanisms and the neural structures involved in visual mental imagery. The patient becameExpand
