White matter abnormalities in bipolar disorder and schizophrenia detected using diffusion tensor magnetic resonance imaging

OBJECTIVES: Strong qualitative and quantitative evidence exists of white matter abnormalities in both schizophrenia and bipolar disorder (BD). Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) studies suggest altered connectivity in both disorders. We aim to address the diagnostic specificity of white matter abnormalities in these disorders. METHODS: DTI was used to assess white matter integrity in clinically stable ...

White matter abnormalities in bipolar disorder and schizophrenia detected using diffusion tensor magnetic resonance imaging

Strong qualitative and quantitative evidence exists of white matter abnormalities in both schizophrenia and bipolar disorder (BD). Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) studies suggest altered connectivity in both disorders. We aim to address the diagnostic specificity of white matter abnormalities in these disorders. DTI was used to assess white matter integrity in clinically stable patients with familial ...

White matter correlates of cognitive dysfunction after mild traumatic brain injury

OBJECTIVE: To relate neurophysiologic changes after mild/moderate traumatic brain injury to cognitive deficit in a longitudinal diffusion tensor imaging investigation. METHODS: Fifty-three patients were scanned an average of 6 days postinjury (range = 1-14 days). Twenty-three patients were rescanned 1 year later. Thirty-three matched control subjects were recruited. At the time of scanning, participants ...

White matter density in patients with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and their unaffected relatives

BACKGROUND: This study sought to assess white matter density in patients and relatives with histories of bipolar disorder and/or schizophrenia. METHODS: Subjects included those with schizophrenia from families affected by schizophrenia alone, those with bipolar disorder from families affected by bipolar disorder alone and those with bipolar disorder from families affected by both bipolar disorder and ...

White matter hyperintensities and normal-appearing white matter integrity in the ageing brain

White matter hyperintensities (WMH) of presumed vascular origin are a common finding in brain magnetic resonance imaging of older individuals and contribute to cognitive and functional decline. It is unknown how WMH form, although white matter degeneration is characterized pathologically by demyelination, axonal loss, and rarefaction, often attributed to ischemia. Changes within normal-appearing white ...

White matter hyperintensities and rating scales - observer reliability varies with lesion load

Background:. Cerebral white matter hyperintensities (WMHs) are common in older people. Their presence correlates with cognitive decline and vascular risk factors. Various scales have been developed to quantify the amount and type of WMH, but with few observer reliability studies. We evaluated several scales in different cohorts to determine their observer reliability. Methods:. Two observers independently ...

White matter integrity and cognition in childhood and old age

Objective: To test the hypothesis that white matter integrity, as measured by diffusion tensor and magnetization transfer MRI is significantly associated with cognitive ability measured in youth and old age. Methods: Forty, nondemented, surviving participants of the Scottish Mental Survey of 1932 underwent brain MRI and a battery of psychometric tests covering major cognitive domains and tests of information ...

White matter integrity as an intermediate phenotype: Exploratory genome-wide association analysis in individuals at high risk of bipolar disorder

White matter integrity, as measured using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), is reduced in individuals with bipolar disorder (BD), their unaffected relatives and carriers of specific risk-alleles. Fractional anisotropy (FA), an index of white matter integrity, is highly heritable but the genetic architecture of this trait has received little investigation. In this study we performed a genome-wide ...

White Matter Integrity in the Splenium of the Corpus Callosum is Related to Successful Cognitive Aging and Partly Mediates the Protective Effect of an Ancestral Polymorphism in ADRB2

It has recently been reported that the evolutionarily ancestral alleles of two functional polymorphisms in the beta(2)-adrenergic receptor gene (ADRB2) were related to higher cognitive ability in the 70 year old participants of the Lothian Birth Cohort 1936 (LBC1936). One emerging important factor in cognitive aging is the integrity of white matter tracts in the brain. Here, we used diffusion tensor ...
