Frontal White Matter Alterations in Short-Term Medicated Panic Disorder Patients without Comorbid Conditions: A Diffusion Tensor Imaging Study
TLDR
Altered integrity in frontal WM of patients with PD without comorbid conditions might represent the structural pathophysiology in these patients, and these changes could be related to clinical symptoms of PD.
The White Matter Microintegrity Alterations of Neocortical and Limbic Association Fibers in Major Depressive Disorder and Panic Disorder
TLDR
The widespread pattern of microintegrity alterations in fronto-limbic WM circuit for MDD was different from restrictive pattern of alterations for PD, and the PD group had lower microIntegrity in bilateral superior longitudinal fasciculi and left inferior front-occipital fasciculus when compared to controls.
Shared white matter alterations across emotional disorders: A voxel-based meta-analysis of fractional anisotropy
White Matter-Based Structural Brain Network of Anxiety.
TLDR
Studies of white matter status in anxiety revealed overlapping patterns of front-cortical and fronto-limbic changes with uncinate fasciculus and cingulum alterations a frequent component.
White matter abnormalities in adolescents with generalized anxiety disorder: a diffusion tensor imaging study
TLDR
A neural basis of emotion dysregulation in adolescent GAD patients is suggested, and adolescents with GAD showed significantly reduced FA in bilateral uncinate fasciculus, inferior fronto-occipital fascicule, inferior longitudinal fasciculi, and corona radiata.
White matter microstructural changes are associated with alcohol use in patients with panic disorder.
Changes in regional homogeneity of parieto-temporal regions in panic disorder patients who achieved remission with antidepressant treatment.
A dynamic relation between whole-brain white matter microstructural integrity and anxiety symptoms in preadolescent females with pathological anxiety
Pathological anxiety typically emerges during preadolescence and has been linked to alterations in white matter (WM) pathways. Because myelination is critical for efficient neuronal communication,

Evidence of frontotemporal structural hypoconnectivity in social anxiety disorder: A quantitative fiber tractography study
TLDR
Reduced volume of the left UF in SAD fits well into pathophysiological models of anxiety, as it suggests deficient structural connectivity between higher‐level control areas in the orbitofrontal cortex and more basal limbic areas like the amygdala.

Temporal and right frontal lobe alterations in panic disorder: a quantitative volumetric and voxel-based morphometric MRI study
TLDR
The results of reduced temporal and frontal lobe volume in PD are in agreement with prior studies, and the location of GM volume reduction in the right middle temporal gyrus and medial orbitofrontal cortex lends further support to recent aetiological models of PD.
Increased prevalence of white matter hyperintensities in patients with panic disorder
TLDR
This report is the first study to report an increased prevalence of WMH in patients with PD, and a greater severity of total WMH was associated with a diagnosis of PD in a dose-dependent pattern.
