Patients with hyperthyroidism may show impaired performance on several neuropsychological tests that require complex visual discrimination, conceptualization, mental flexibility or organization. These neurocognitive impairments appear to be consistent with prefrontal lobe dysfunction. This pilot study was undertaken to characterize the metabolite profile in the right prefrontal cortex in six patients with untreated Graves' disease by using in vivo proton magnetic-resonance spectroscopy (1H-MRS… CONTINUE READING
