Neural Correlates of Verbal Episodic Memory and Lexical Retrieval in Logopenic Variant Primary Progressive Aphasia.
Objective: Logopenic variant primary progressive aphasia (lvPPA) is commonly associated with Alzheimer's disease (AD) pathology. But lvPPA patients display different cognitive and anatomical profile from the common clinical AD patients, whose verbal

Emotion detection deficits and changes in personality traits linked to loss of white matter integrity in primary progressive aphasia.
Non-cognitive features including personality changes are increasingly recognized in the three PPA variants (semantic-svPPA, non fluent-nfvPPA, and logopenic-lvPPA). However, differences in emotion processing among the PPA variants and its association

Core auditory processing deficits in primary progressive aphasia.
The extent to which non-linguistic auditory processing deficits may contribute to the phenomenology of primary progressive aphasia is not established. Using non-linguistic stimuli devoid of meaning we assessed three key domains of auditory processing

Frontal white matter tracts sustaining speech production in primary progressive aphasia.
In primary progressive aphasia (PPA), speech and language difficulties are caused by neurodegeneration of specific brain networks. In the nonfluent/agrammatic variant (nfvPPA), motor speech and grammatical deficits are associated with atrophy in a le

White Matter Disruption and Connected Speech in Non-Fluent and Semantic Variants of Primary Progressive Aphasia.
Differential patterns of white matter disruption have recently been reported in the non-fluent (nfvPPA) and semantic (svPPA) variants of primary progressive aphasia (PPA). No single measure is sufficient to distinguish between the PPA variants, but c

Primary progressive aphasia.
Primary progressive aphasia (PPA) is a progressive loss of specific language functions with relative sparing of other cognitive domains at least for the first few years of the illness. Based on the constellation of symptoms, PPA has been recently cla

Treatment of Primary Progressive Aphasia.
Primary progressive aphasia (PPA) is a neurodegenerative disease that primarily affects language functions and often begins in the fifth or sixth decade of life. The devastating effects on work and home life call for the investigation of treatment al

White Matter Correlates of Auditory Comprehension Outcomes in Chronic Post-Stroke Aphasia.
Neuroimaging studies have shown that speech comprehension involves a number of widely distributed regions within the frontal and temporal lobes. We aimed to examine the differential contributions of white matter connectivity to auditory word and sent

Pathology in primary progressive aphasia syndromes.
'Primary progressive aphasia' (PPA) refers to core linguistic disorders caused by neurodegenerative disease. Three main PPA variants are recognized: nonfluent/agrammatic, semantic and logopenic. Correctly classifying patients during life according to
