Behavioural variant frontotemporal dementia can present with episodic memory deficits as severe as those in Alzheimer's disease. Little is known of the integrity of grey matter areas and white matter tracts of the Papez memory circuit in these diseases. The integrity of the Papez circuit (hippocampus, fornix, mammillary bodies, anterior thalamus, cingulate cortex) was investigated in vivo and at post-mortem in behavioural variant frontotemporal dementia and Alzheimer's disease cohorts using… CONTINUE READING
