White matter abnormalities in the brain
Clinical studies have determined associations between the occurrence of white matter abnormalities in the brain and cognitive decline and gait impairment, as well as increased relative risk for cerebrovascular disease. Besides abnormalities in cognition, physical examination signs that relate most commonly to the presence of white matter abnormalities include an extensor plantar reflex and the presence of primitive reflexes.
