Abstract

Volumetric MRI studies have highlighted the pronounced loss of white matter in premanifest and early Huntington s Disease (HD). The current study focussed on the corpus callosum (CC) since it provides interhemispheric connections to vulnerable cortical areas. To investigate cross-sectional and longitudinal group differences in CC volume and hypothesis-driven associations with three cognitive tasks.
