Age-associated memory impairment (AAMI) is a common but disputed entity. It is unclear whether AAMI is a phenomenon of normal aging or an early sign of Alzheimer's disease. The present study aimed to identify possible structural abnormalities in the medial temporal lobe of AAMI subjects. We measured volumes of the hippocampus and amygdala by MRI in 16 AAMI subjects and in 16 age- and sex-matched controls and correlated the volumes with subjects' performance on two visual memory tasks (the… Expand
MRI of the Hippocampus in Alzheimer’s Disease: Sensitivity, Specificity, and Analysis of the Incorrectly Classified Subjects
TLDR
It is concluded that the hippocampus as assessed by MRI volumetry is atrophied early in AD, and spared by aging or AAMI. Expand
Volumes of hippocampus, amygdala and frontal lobes in the MRI-based diagnosis of early Alzheimer's disease: Correlation with memory functions
TLDR
In AD patients the volumes of the left hippocampus correlated significantly with the MMSE score and with immediate and delayed verbal memory; the smaller the volume the more impaired was their performance. Expand
Hippocampal Atrophy in Persons With Age-Associated Memory Impairment: Volumetry Within a Common Space
TLDR
A growing body of work suggests the right hippocampal head as an early site of atrophy in early memory impairment and Subtle atrophic changes are detectable within a common atlas template allowing imaging assessment across centers. Expand
Memory impairments associated with hippocampal versus parahippocampal-gyrus atrophy: an MR volumetry study in Alzheimer’s disease
TLDR
The results suggest that hippocampal and parahippocampal gyrus atrophy in AD are related to distinct aspects of the patients' memory impairments, and have implications for current discussions regarding contributions of the hippocampus and the parah Hippocampal Gyrus to memory in the intact human brain. Expand
Memory and MRI-based hippocampal volumes in aging and AD
TLDR
MRI-based hippocampal volumetry accurately depicts the structural–functional relationships between memory loss and hippocampal damage across the spectrum from normal aging to dementia. Expand
Discriminating accuracy of medial temporal lobe volumetry and fMRI in mild cognitive impairment
TLDR
The results suggest that evaluation of entorhinal atrophy, in addition to the prevailing diagnostic criteria, seems promising in the identification of prodromal AD. Expand
Hippocampal and temporal lobe atrophy and age‐related decline in memory
Objectives ± To evaluate the relationship of memory decline that accompanies aging with structural changes in the medial temporal lobe, in healthy middle-aged and older subjects. Material and methodsExpand
Functional and anatomical memory indices in patients with or at risk for Alzheimer's disease
TLDR
The results support the utility of neuropsychological and neuroanatomical measures in diagnosing dementia and do not support the notion that P300 amplitude is sensitive to mild memory dysfunction when measured using the current task. Expand
Evidence of a smaller left hippocampus and left temporal horn in both patients with first episode schizophrenia and normal control subjects
Findings from cerebral magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies in schizophrenia indicating temporal lobe involvement have been inconsistent and controversial. In a prospective study, we quantifiedExpand
The role of volumetric MRI in understanding mild cognitive impairment and similar classifications
TLDR
Longitudinal results confirm that initial hippocampal volume is predictive of conversion to AD, and greater standardization in methodology and the development of normative age-referenced databases of regional brain volumes is required. Expand

Quantification of magnetic resonance scans for hippocampal and parahippocampal atrophy in Alzheimer's disease
TLDR
MRI scans revealed that hippocampus and parahippocampal gyrus volumes had the highest correlation with scores on the Mini-Mental State Examination, and areas of the brain that are not highly involved in the degenerative state of AD, such as the striatum, did not show significant volumetric changes. Expand
Quantitative NMR measurements of hippocampal atrophy in Alzheimer's disease
TLDR
The results show that NMR is capable of providing in vivo quantification of diminished hippocampal size in AD which is not cor‐related with overall brain atrophy and which may differentiate AD from normal aging. Expand
MRI of Amygdala and Hippocampus in Temporal Lobe Epilepsy
TLDR
Volumetric study improves the diagnostic yield of MRI evaluation in patients with TLE not related to gross structural lesions and because they are quantitative, volumetric studies permit better comparison of results in different subgroups of patients withTLE. Expand
Hippocampal sclerosis and human memory.
TLDR
Hippocampal sclerosis impairs the ability to learn associations and to retain information over a delay interval, and for the learning and retention of verbal material, the left hippocampus is more important than the right. Expand
Anterior temporal lobes and hippocampal formations: normative volumetric measurements from MR images in young adults.
TLDR
Right-left asymmetry in the volumes of the anterior temporal lobes and hippocampal formations was a normal finding and no effect of age, sex, or handedness was seen in normalized hippocampal formation volumes. Expand
Human amnesia and the medial temporal region: enduring memory impairment following a bilateral lesion limited to field CA1 of the hippocampus
TLDR
This is the first reported case of amnesia following a lesion limited to the hippocampus in which extensive neuropsychological and neuropathological analyses have been carried out. Expand
Hippocampal volumetric and morphometric studies in frontal and temporal lobe epilepsy.
TLDR
The clinical application of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) using a three-dimensional volume technique which allows total hippocampal volume to be measured and symmetry evaluated can demonstrate asymmetry and focal involvement, and help distinguish between hippocampal and frontal pathologies.

TLDR
High-resolution neuroimaging techniques can distinguish between patients with diencephalic and medial temporal lobe amnesia, and can provide useful information about the crucial issue of patient classification, and they set the stage for exploring possible quantitative and qualitative differences between patients.
