Objective: Direct neuronal loss or deafferentation of the putamen, a critical hub in corticostriatal circuits, may result in diverse and distinct cognitive and motoric dysfunction in neurodegenerative disease. Differential putaminal morphology, as a quantitative measure of corticostriatal integrity, may thus be evident in Huntingtons disease (HD), Alzheimers disease (AD) and frontotemporal dementia (FTD), diseases with differential clinical dysfunction. Methods: HD (n = 17), FTD (n = 33) and AD...[Show more]
