40 Possible Causes for Cortical Thinning, Impaired Judgement

  • Alzheimer Disease

    It affects memory, thinking, orientation, comprehension, calculation, learning capacity, language, and judgement. Consciousness is not affected.[who.int] Na, Dae Ryong Kang and Sang Won Seo, Higher education affects accelerated cortical thinning in Alzheimer's disease: a 5-year preliminary longitudinal study, International[dx.doi.org] ., posterior cingulate, precuneus, and/or temporoparietal cortices) on FDG-PET, and (3) cortical thinning/gray matter loss in a specific anatomic distribution (i.e., lateral[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    ; disrupted insight, judgement, and thought; reduced processing speed; distractibility; and deficits in executive functions such as abstract reasoning, planning, problem-solving[en.wikipedia.org] Blast-Exposed Veterans With Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Show Greater Frontal Cortical Thinning and Poorer Executive Functioning .[doi.org] […] frontal atrophy may have impaired post-retrieval evaluation processes leading the patient to falsely conclude, based on more general characteristics of the study episode,[dx.doi.org]

  • Schizophrenia

    Patterns of cortical thinning in different subgroups of schizophrenia. The British Journal of Psychiatry: the Journal of Mental Science 206, 479 – 483.[doi.org] Original Article Positive symptoms associate with cortical thinning in the superior temporal gyrus via the ENIGMA Schizophrenia consortium Department of Psychology, Georgia[doi.org] Cortical thinning in temporo-parietal junction (TPJ) in non-affective first-episode of psychosis patients with persistent negative symptoms. PLoS ONE 9, e101372.[doi.org]

  • Bipolar Disorder

    It affects memory, thinking, orientation, comprehension, calculation, learning capacity, language, and judgement.[who.int] thinning in bipolar I disorder, Translational Psychiatry, 10.1038/tp.2017.57, 7, 4, (e1086-e1086), (2017).[doi.org] The impairment in cognitive function is commonly accompanied, and occasionally preceded, by deterioration in emotional control, social behaviour, or motivation.[who.int]

  • Multi-Infarct Dementia

    Insight and judgement may be relatively well preserved.[azpsychiatry.info] Incident subcortical infarcts induce focal thinning in connected cortical regions. Neurology. 2012;79(20):2025–8.[doi.org] Symptoms tend to progress gradually or stepwise and comparatively slower than in multi- infarct dementia Generally associated with signs of subcortical pathology Early symptoms Impaired[amboss.com]

  • Primary Hyperparathyroidism

    The resultant bone resorption produces cortical thinning (subperiosteal resorption) and osteopenia.[radiopaedia.org] thinning 4 Ulnar deviation of the metacarpophalangeal joints 5 Dense bone filling the medullary cavity of the phalanges and metacarpals M1 Select Answer to see Preferred[medbullets.com] thinning : especially prominent in the phalanges of the hand (acroosteolysis) Salt-and-pepper skull Rugger-jersey spine sign References: [1] [4] [8] [9] [2] [10] [11] Treatment[amboss.com]

  • Mania

  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

    The best predictors of outcome to include aqueductal flow void , thinning of the corpus callosum, effacement of the sulci with absence of cortical atrophy and gait apraxia[docneuro.com] Evidence of cortical or hippocampal atrophy is not consistent with the diagnosis and degenerative diseases should be considered instead.[clinicaladvisor.com] Characteristic findings include rounding or bowing of the lateral and third ventricles, thinning of the corpus callosum, and a flow void in the aqueduct of Sylvius.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Cerebral Cortical Atrophy

    No thinning was detected in temporal or prefrontal cortices. Fig. 2. Cortical thinning on the medial brain surface in HIV/AIDS.[pnas.org] This degeneration is essentially limited to the cortex and does not affect other, sub-cortical structures the way that Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases do.[thebrain.mcgill.ca] At this stage of HIV infection, cortical thinning in these association areas better accounted for cognitive symptoms than did cortical thinning in the primary cortical regions[pnas.org]
