Cognitive Deficits and Structural Brain Changes Associated with Dementia and Visual Hallucinations in Parkinson’s Disease

Abstract

Parkinson’s disease (PD) involves neuropatholog-<lb>ical changes in the limbic system that lead to neuronal loss<lb>and volumetric reductions of several nuclei. We investigated<lb>possible volumetric reductions of the amygdala and hip-<lb>pocampus associated to PD. We carried out magnetic reso-<lb>nance imaging (MRI) volumetric studies in 16 patients with… (More)
