Abstract: Cerebral white matter changes (WMC), detected with computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), represent a common condition in elderly people. However, the prognostic, symptomatological and biochemical constituents of WMC are only partially known. The aim of the present study was to evaluate WMC in relation to clinical manifestations in patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and dementia and, by means of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analyses, to study different structural b... more
