Cerebral white matter undergoes various changes with normal aging. This study investigated the association between age, gender, and the global and regional fractional anisotropy (FA) and mean diffusivity (MD) in 145 adults (30 to 80 years old) using diffusion tensor magnetic resonance imaging. We studied sixteen regions of interest in both hemispheres to(More)
This study investigated whether diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) could identify potential abnormalities in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients without cognitive complaints compared to healthy controls. In addition, the existence of associations between diffusion measures and clinical parameters was examined. Forty T2DM patients and 97 non-diabetic(More)
Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) has already proven to be a valuable tool when investigating both global and regional microstructural white matter (WM) brain changes in the human aging process. Although subject to many criticisms, voxel-based analysis is currently one of the most common and preferred approaches in such DTI aging studies. In this context,(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the white matter (WM) microstructure using diffusion tensor imaging in patients with vascular parkinsonism (VP) and specific fiber tract involvement with respect to clinical severity. DESIGN Diffusion measures (fractional anisotropy and mean diffusivity) were calculated from diffusion tensor images of patients with VP and control(More)
We investigated dual-phase 18F-florbetapir (AV-45/Amyvid) PET imaging for the concomitant detection of brain perfusion deficits and beta-amyloid deposition in patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and amnestic mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and in cognitively healthy controls (HCs). A total of 82 subjects (24 AD patients, 44 MCI patients and 14 HCs)(More)
BACKGROUND Few studies have examined alterations of the brain in elderly bipolar patients. As late-onset mania is associated with increased cerebrovascular morbidity and neurological damage compared with typical/early-onset mania, we investigated differences in the volume of various cortical regions between elderly patients with early-onset versus(More)
Computer supported collaborative learning (CSCL) has captured many educators and researchers to contribute their efforts on this domain. This study proposed a two-dimension concept to explain learners’ collaboration behaviors in a CSCL laboratory setting. A two-dimension process, namely perceptual dimensions and supportive dimensions, is useful to explain(More)
We evaluated a 39-year-old chronic alcoholic man with acute multiple cognitive impairment and callosal lesion seen in MRI, diagnosed as Marchiafava-Bignami disease (MBD), using analysis of electroencephalography (EEG) coherence. Three EEG sessions were recorded in the first week, the second and eighth month after disease onset in the MBD patient.(More)
The dopamine hypothesis has been the cornerstone in the research and clinical practice of schizophrenia. With the initial emphasis on the role of excessive dopamine, the hypothesis has evolved to a concept of combining prefrontal hypodopaminergia and striatal hyperdopaminergia, and subsequently to the present aberrant salience hypothesis.

The purpose of this study was to further localize cerebral perfusion abnormalities, and to better correlate these abnormalities with the clinical severity of Parkinson’s disease (PD). A single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) study was performed on 27 patients with PD and 24 age-matched controls. SPECT images were spatially normalized,(More)
