INTRODUCTION Patients with mutations in C9orf72 can have amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), frontotemporal dementia (FTD), or ALS-FTD. The goals were to establish whether cortical hyperexcitability occurs in C9orf72 patients with different clinical presentations. METHODS Cortical thresholds and silent periods were measured in thenar muscles in 19(More)
Increased functional connectivity in resting state networks was found in several studies of patients with motor neuron disorders, although diffusion tensor imaging studies consistently show loss of white matter integrity. To understand the relationship between structural connectivity and functional connectivity, we examined the structural connections(More)
