Factors involved in memory impairment in those with multiple system atrophy

Takeaway

  • This is the largest study to date regarding pathologically proven multiple system atrophy (MSA) cases, and clearly shows that memory impairment in multiple system atrophy is linked to neuronal cytoplasmic inclusion burden in both the parahippocampus and hippocampus.

Why this matters

    Better understanding of MSA will allow for earlier diagnosis, intervention and management.
