We found that in addition to the medial temporal lobe system, ReHo value significantly decreased in the right occipital lobe and lingual gyrus suggesting the presence of resting-state brain functional abnormalities in multiple brain areas, which are associated with memory in aMCI patients.
Our findings are similar with abnormal MRI in 36.4%, medial temporal hyper intensities were seen in 27.3% and subcortical in 9.1%.
Tests using high-resolution MRI scans provided detailed examination of the medial temporal lobe, a region involved in forming new memories.
However, APOE4 carriers had higher AV1451 uptake in their anterior medial temporal lobes (MTL), a difference that remained unchanged after controlling for PiB.
According to T1WI layer scales, we used medial temporal lobes atrophy (MTA-scale)[10] as the temporal lobes atrophy evaluation method: choosing a layer through the hippocampus coronal plane in front of the pons.
Voxel-based morphometry (VBM) and tensor-based morphometry (TBM), which allow 3D mapping of focal differences in brain anatomy, have detected significantly faster tissue reduction in the medial temporal lobe, posterior cingulate gyrus, and hippocampus [9-12].
Notably, the patient's neuroimaging demonstrated a larger lesion in the right medial temporal lobe, in accordance with Hoffman's findings of the GG behavioral pattern in right temporal lobe stroke victims [15].
The material-specific memory model has been drawn from the observations of Milner (4), who found that postoperative lesion in the left medial temporal lobe caused problems with verbal memory, while lesion in the right medial temporal lobe damaged memory for the non-verbal tasks.
The patients whose responses were examined included patients at the University Hospital of Bonn with severe cases of medial temporal lobe epilepsy, which can result in the removal of brain tissue that triggers epileptic seizures.
