Fiber-specific changes in Parkinson’s disease hallucinations and low visual performance

Takeaway

  • Parkinson’s disease (PD) hallucinations and low visual performance are associated with specific white matter tract degeneration that affects posterior thalamic tracts.

Why this matters ?

    The neural substrates of hallucinations and visual dysfunction may shed light on the early stages of cognitive impairment in PD. These findings support attentional network changes in Parkinson hallucinations and provide insights into the early Parkinson dementia.
