White Matter Differences Identified in Early-stage Alzheimer’s Disease, Frontotemporal Dementia
Findings from a study recently conducted by neuropsychologist Christiane Möller as part of her doctoral work showed that patients with Alzheimer's disease as well as behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia have large differences in their brains' white matter. For her research, which is funded by the NWO's National Initiative Brain & Cognition, she used advanced image analysis techniques on MRI brain scans from early-stage dementia patients. Alzheimer's disease and the behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia (FTD) are two dementias that are difficult to distinguish between in
