Axonal injury or loss in the internal capsule and motor impairment in multiple sclerosis.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that axonal damage extending into primarily normal-appearing white matter is clinically important by comparing the concentrations of N-acetylaspartate (NAA) bilaterally within the internal capsule with lateralization of motor impairment in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) and persistent asymmetrical motor deficit. DESIGN: We performed magnetic resonance spectroscopy and T2-weighted imaging of the internal capsule, calculated central motor conduction time...
