09:05 1. Clinical Needs for Dementia and AD: Revising the Criteria
1Hôpital La Salpêtrière, Paris, France
New diagnostic criteria for Alzheimer disease have been recently proposed that are centered around a clinical core of early and significant episodic memory impairment. They stipulate that in addition there must also be at least one or more abnormal biomarkers amongst structural neuroimaging with MRI, molecular neuroimaging with PET and CSF analysis of amyloid β/tau proteins. The timeliness of these criteria is underscored by the myriad of drugs currently under development that are directed at altering the disease pathogenesis, particularly at the production and clearance of amyloid β as well as at the hyperphosphorylation state of tau.

MRI has an increasingly large role in the clinical work-up of dementia. In the new research criteria, atrophy of the medial temporal lobe is mentioned as one of the diagnostic criteria for AD, but norm values are still awaited. Mixed disease (i.e. combination with vascular disease) remains a challenge, as there are no diagnostic guidelines available. MRI measures hold promise as markers of disease progression and can potentially be used as outcome measures in trials. The heterogeneity of AD is increasingly acknowledged. MRI may prove valuable to describe endophenotypes of AD, both in terms of structural and functional brain changes

The development of molecular imaging techniques for in vivo assessment of beta-amyloid accumulation in the ageing brain is an important and active area of research in AD. Numerous ligands have been developed with affinity for beta-amyloid, based on beta-amyloid peptide, monoclonal antibody fragments, or small peptides, which were functionalized with iron oxide particles or gadolium chelates. Alternatively, amyloid plaques have been labeled with small molecules containing a 19F atom and visualized using 19F MRI. Up to now, the only compounds that are in use for clinical imaging are nuclear medicine–based amyloid labeling tracers.

We correlated training induced volume changes seen by high-resolution mouse MRI with four cellular markers to test whether (1) alterations in neuron numbers/sizes; (2) alterations in astrocyte numbers/sizes; (3) increased neurogenesis/survival of new neurons; or (4) remodelling of neuronal processes best explain the MRI results. We detected a significant positive correlation between GAP-43 and structure volume, but found no correlation between MR volume and any other cellular measure. We can thus conclude that, among the hypotheses tested, the largest explanatory factor for learning induced MRI detectable volume changes is the remodelling of neuronal processes.
11:24 5. Do Congenitally Blind People Have a Stria of Gennari? First in Vivo Insights on a Subcortical Level

The primary visual cortex V1 is characterized by an easily identifiable anatomical landmark: the heavily myelinated stria of Gennari. Using T1, T2, T2* or phase contrast, high resolution MRI studies can routinely identify the stria of Gennari in vivo. However, the development and function of the Gennari stripe is unclear. MRI at 7 Tesla with isotropic 0.5 mm voxels was used to scan the occipital brain of sighted and congenitally blind subjects. The stria of Gennari was reliably detected in both sighted and blind subjects, showing that this anatomical feature is not a developmental result of visual input, and it does not degenerate in the absence of visual input.

Structural imaging applied to children with wide ranging mathematical abilities has the potential to elucidate the question of what neural circuits underly computation based tasks. The present investigation analyzed the myelin water fraction images of 20 children in a standard space to deduce correlations between myelin content and math abilities. Subjects wrote a calculation-based test and an applied problem-based test. The results implicated occipital/parietal white matter, the right anterior limb of the internal capsule and the left external capsule with positive correlations of 0.61,0.65 and 0.60, respectively.

We utilized DTI to follow up on micro-structural changes that occur following a spatial memory task. We scanned rats before and after water maze task and compared their MRI scans using voxel-based statistics. Significant changes in the various DTI parameters were found in a multitude of brain regions including the limbic system and white matter systems. The changes in the DTI indices were found to correlate with immuno-reactivity staining of myelin, synapses and astrocytes. Using these observations, we conclude that DTI can be used as an in-vivo probe of structural plasticity both in gray matter and white matter.

Epilepsy is the most chronic, common neurological condition. Many patients with temporal lobe epilepsy undergo anterior temporal lobe resection, but up to 40% of patients are at risk of language decline after surgery. We carried out a longitudinal study using diffusion tensor imaging to assess the structural reorganisation of white matter after surgery. In patients undergoing surgery in the language dominant hemisphere, there is an increase in FA in white matter connecting fronto-temporal regions. The location of these increases and their correlation with language function suggest they may represent the structural plasticity of language networks after surgery.

Neuroimaging studies of brain plasticity reveal long-term learning related structural changes in several brain regions. Animal studies revealed that short term micro-structural changes can be observed with diffusion MRI. Here, we study the diffusion MRI changes in a short term spatial memory task in humans. Subjects underwent two MRI scans separated by two hours of a learning session. We found that DTI parameters had changed in several brain regions, including the hippocampus, entorhinal cortex, amygdala and insula. The main result of this work is that DTI can follow on learning-induced micro-structural tissue changes, already 2 hours following the training episode.
12:24 10. A Demonstration of Neural Plasticity in Resting Brain Network

We hypothesized that an important feature of the evoked activity, the plasticity of the neural response, may also be present in the resting condition and may provide critical information for understanding the nature and significance of the resting state brain activity. Using motor cortex as a model, we demonstrated for the first time that the resting brain activity can be altered after repetitive stimulation of the associated brain networks. This method may provide a new approach to study brain plasticity in humans and may find applications in studies of aging and neurodegenerative diseases.

Interhemispheric plasticity may play a critical role during functional restoration following central/peripheral nervous system injuries in humans. Previously, the interhemispheric plasticity in the rat somatosensory cortex (S1) following forepaw unilateral denervation has been studied in order to develop rodent models of plasticity detected in humans by fMRI. Here, the effects of unilateral infraorbital denervation (IO) to rat whisker responses were studied. Large ipsilateral fMRI activation was detected after IO. In addition, BOLD signals in the contralateral barrel cortex were significantly increased. This indicates that the unilateral IO caused plasticity of the whisker-barrel cortex ascending pathways and increased interhemispheric interactions.

Plasicity happening to the resting state connectivity map following rat peripheral nerve injury and repair was shown using 9.4T. Unique patterns of plasticity could help monitoring the neuro-network function when functional test in not available.
