AbstractINTRODUCTION: White matter hyperintensities (WMH), best discerned on T2-weighted or fluid-attenuated inversion recovery magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), have been increasingly recognised as one of the underlying causes of insidious cognitive decline.

We aimed to identify and assess the spectrum of cognitive impairments associated with advanced WMH in a cohort of 340 otherwise healthy hypertensive elderly Chinese. METHODS: Demographical information, standard neuropsychological tests and multi-sequence MRI scans were obtained from all participants. The neuropsychological tests evaluated the following domains: attention, visuospatial ability, memory, language …
