The relationship between quantitative measurements of brain white-matter hyperintensity (WMH), assessed by magnetic resonance imaging and neuropsychological functions, was explored in demented patients and healthy aged individuals with and without WMH in 12 brain regions. The prevalence of WMH was significantly higher in vascular dementia compared with Alzheimer's disease, especially in posterior periventricular regions. Results showed no difference in any neuropsychological measurement between… CONTINUE READING
