Coronary heart disease (CHD) has been associated with impaired cognition, but the mechanisms underlying these changes remain unclear. We designed this study to determine whether adults with CHD show regional brain losses of grey matter volume relative to controls. We used statistical parametric mapping (SPM5) to determine regional changes in grey matter volume of T(1)-weighted magnetic resonance images of 11 adults with prior history of myocardial infarction relative to seven healthy controls… CONTINUE READING
