Neuropsychological correlates of brain atrophy in Huntington's disease: a magnetic resonance imaging study

  author={Sergio E. Starkstein and Jason Brandt and Frederick W Bylsma and C E Peyser and Marshal F. Folstein and Susan E. Folstein},
Magnetic resonance imaging and a comprehensive cognitive evaluation were carried out in a series of 29 patients with mild to moderate Huntington's disease (HD). A factor analysis of the neuropsychological test scores provided three factors: a memory/speed-of-processing factor, a “frontal” factor, and a response inhibition factor. The memory/speed factor correlated significantly with measures of caudate atrophy, frontal atrophy, and atrophy of the left (but not the right) sylvian cistern. There… CONTINUE READING
