When analyzing specific parts of the brain (here a region called the hippocampus, known to be involved in memory), it is often necessary to manually delineate these regions. The manual tracing here illustrates hippocampus.
Hippocampus is important for memory. Reduction of hippocampal volume is associated with Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, and age-related cognitive decline. We assess changes in hippocampal volume and integrity in a large sample of community-dwelling non-demented ageing adults at 73, 76 and 79 years of age.
