Lateralized occipital degeneration in posterior cortical atrophy predicts visual field deficits
Posterior cortical atrophy (PCA), the visual variant of Alzheimer's disease, leads to high-level visual deficits such as alexia or agnosia. Visual field deficits have also been identified, but often inconsistently reported. Little is known about the pattern of visual field deficits or the underlying cortical changes leading to this visual loss.
Multi-modal magnetic resonance imaging was used to investigate differences in gray matter volume, cort...Expand abstract
