Table 1 Correlation among ​the MMSE score, the z-score of the parahippocampal gyrus, and the diffusion tensor parameters (FA, ADC) of the uncinate fascicles on both sides of the same periods

From: Diffusion tensor studies and voxel-based morphometry of the temporal lobe to determine the cognitive prognosis in cases of Alzheimer’s disease and mild cognitive impairment: Do white matter changes precede gray matter changes?
