Louis, Elan D.; Brickman, Adam M.; DeCarli, Charles; Small, Scott A.; Marder, Karen; Schupf, Nicole; Brown, Truman R.

Mild parkinsonian signs (MPS) are a marker of incident dementia. They have been linked with cerebrovascular disease, which can be evaluated using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Also, if MPS are a marker for developing Alzheimer-type changes, hippocampal volume on MRI might be diminished in individuals with MPS.
