The overarching objective of the thesis was to investigate the morphological changes in the corpus callosum (CC) in aging and dementia in relation to its role in cognitive and motor decline. The CC is the largest white matter tract in the brain, containing upwards of 200 million axons, and is believed important for communication and interaction between the two cerebral hemispheres. Historically, the role of white matter, including the CC, in relation to cognitive function has often been… 

Corpus callosal atrophy and associations with cognitive impairment in Parkinson disease

Notable volume loss occurs in the corpus callosum in PD, with specific neuroanatomic distributions in PDD and relationships of regional atrophy to different cognitive domains.

Connectivity-Based Topographical Changes of the Corpus Callosum During Aging

This study revealed the callosal subregions related to functional networks and uncovered an overall “anterior-to-posterior” region-specific changing trend during aging, which provides a baseline to identify the presence and timing of callosal connection states.

Cortical Activation in Mental Rotation and the Role of the Corpus Callosum: Observations in Healthy Subjects and Split-Brain Patients

The results suggest that performing MR requires activation of opercular cortex and inferior parietal lobule in either hemispheres, and likely the integrity of the CC, thus confirming that the main brain commissure is involved in cognitive functions.

Corpus Callosum and Ventricle : MRI Determination of Dementia in Turkish Population and Healthy Geriatric Subjects

The observations presented in this report have defined anatomic parameters of healthy and dementia geriatric subjects that need to be taken into consideration for reference data to determine sex discrepancies, and be helpful for radiologists and clinicians.

Comparison of neuropsychiatric symptoms and diffusion tensor imaging correlates among patients with subcortical ischemic vascular disease and Alzheimer’s disease

White matter integrity within the BCC/SCC had associations with multi-domains of BPSD, and important roles of regions other than the CC to individual domain of B PSD were identified, including the left superior longitudinal fasciculus to the hyperactivity domain, the left uncinate Fasciculus/forceps major to the psychosis domain, and the right superior longitudinal Fasciculi to the apathy domain.

Breakdown of Inter-Hemispheric Connectivity Is Associated with Posttraumatic Symptomatology and Memory Impairment

Significant correlations were found between PTSD symptoms severity, memory accuracy and reaction-time to CC FA values in the PTSD group, demonstrating meaningful clinical and cognitive correlates of microstructural connectivity.

An MRI review of acquired corpus callosum lesions

The MRI characteristics of acquired lesions involving the corpus callosum are discussed, which depend on the exact localisation of the lesion(s) inside the CC, presence of other lesions seen outside theCC, signal changes on different MRI sequences, evolution over time of the radiological abnormalities, history and clinical state of the patient, and other radiological and non-radiological examinations.

Neuroradiology of Non-Alzheimer's Disease Dementias

The imaging features of some of the more common nonAlzheimer’s disease dementias will be discussed in this review in order to help clinicians and radiologists better diagnose these conditions.



Regional atrophy of the corpus callosum in dementia

Findings suggest that dementia-related CC atrophy occurs primarily in the anterior and posterior portions of the corpus callosum.

Corpus Callosum Atrophy in Patients with Mild Alzheimer’s Disease

The present findings indicate that posterior CC atrophy is present in mild AD independently of ARWMC, andCC atrophy may be associated with cognitive deterioration.

Gross Anatomy of the Corpus Callosum in Alzheimer’s Disease: Regions of Degeneration and Their Neuropsychological Correlates

Background/Aims: Differences in the gross shape of the corpus callosum (CC) and its subregional areas were investigated on brain MRI of patients with probable Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and age- and

Different mechanisms of corpus callosum atrophy in Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia

Abstract.Previous neuroimaging studies have indicated that corpus callosum atrophy in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and large vessel occlusive disease (LVOD) is caused by interhemispheric disconnection,

Comparison of the pattern of atrophy of the corpus callosum in frontotemporal dementia, progressive supranuclear palsy, and Alzheimer's disease

Although atrophy of the corpus callosum is not specific to any degenerative dementia, the patterns of the atrophy are different among patients with FTD, PSP, or early onset AD.

The corpus callosum: white matter or terra incognita.

A better understanding and thus treatment of the pathological entities of the corpus callosum is facilitated by categorising them according to their causes and their manifestations in MR and CT imaging.

Clinical significance of corpus callosum atrophy in a mixed elderly population

Regional atrophy of the corpus callosum in subjects with Alzheimer's disease and multi-infarct dementia

When, where, and how the corpus callosum changes in MCI and AD

Callosal changes are already present in patients with amnestic mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and mild Alzheimer disease (AD) and a retrogenesis process in the anterior callosal subregions of the corpus callosum is suggested to be responsible.
