Objective To investigate whether white matter microstructural changes can be used as a predictor of worsening of motor features or cognitive decline in patients with Parkinson’s disease and verify whether white matter microstructural longitudinal changes differ between patients with Parkinson’s disease with normal cognition and those with mild cognitive impairment.

ABSTRACTBackground: Alzheimer’s disease (AD) can involve changes in communication and can lead to mutism in severe cases. Oral communication may be impaired by phonetic-motor disorders, such as apraxia of speech (AOS), or by language disorders, such as aphasia. Therefore, the identification of manifestations of AOS and phonemic paraphasias in patients with AD is critical to understanding the communication changes and determining the therapeutic planning.Aims: To identify the distribution of phon...

Background and Purpose— We tested whether blood–brain barrier dysfunction in subcortical white matter is associated with white matter abnormalities or risk of clinical dementia in older people (n=126; mean age 86.4, SD: 7.7 years) in the MRC CFAS (Medical Research Council Cognitive Function and Ageing Study). Methods— Using digital pathology, we quantified blood–brain barrier dysfunction (defined by immunohistochemical labeling for the plasma marker fibrinogen). This was assessed within subcorti...

Introduction Microinfarcts, small ischaemic foci common in ageing brain, are associated with dementia and gait dysfunction. We determined their relationship to dementia, mobility and cerebrovascular disease in an older population-representative brain donor cohort. These data on microinfarcts were evaluated in relation to pathological assessments of clinically significant cerebral small vessel disease (SVD). Methods Microinfarcts were assessed in the MRC Cognitive Function and Ageing Study (n=331...

Epidemiological and genetic studies have identified metabolic disorders and inflammation as risk factors for Alzheimer's disease (AD). Evidence in obesity and type-2 diabetes suggests a role for a metabolic inflammasome (“metaflammasome”) in mediating chronic inflammation in peripheral organs implicating IKKβ (inhibitor of nuclear factor kappa-B kinase subunit beta), IRS1 (insulin receptor substrate 1), JNK (c-jun N-terminal kinase), and PKR (double-stranded RNA protein kinase). We hypothesized ...
