RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that distinct patterns of gray matter atrophy are responsible for unique interruptions of the naming process in Alzheimer's disease (AD) and frontotemporal dementia (FTD). MATERIALS AND METHODS Voxel-based morphometry (VBM) was performed to characterize at the voxel level the neuroanatomic changes that occur in AD and FTD based on high-resolution T1-weighted three-dimensional (3D) spoiled-gradient echo images of… CONTINUE READING
