To assess the influence of white matter pathology on cortical reorganization, we probed the fronto-parietal attention network in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients by combining the Paced Visual Serial Addition Test (PVSAT) with fMRI-guided fiber tractography (FT). During the PVSAT, the control subjects activated the left inferior parietal lobule, superior temporal gyrus, precuneus, precentral gyrus, and medial and middle frontal gyri; while the precuneus and the inferior parietal lobule gyrus… CONTINUE READING
