Differential Disturbances of Memory and Mood Following Striatum and Basal Forebrain Lesions in Patients with Ruptures of the Anterior Communicating Artery
For a long time, it has been known that subarachnoid hemorrhage is likely to be followed by Korsakoff’s syndrome . However, in many of the patients the syndrome is transient. The remaining patients may show persistent anterograde memory deficits, as well as personality changes. This lasting syndrome is often referred to as ACoA (anterior communicating artery) syndrome because it is observed most often following the rupture and repair of an aneurysm of the ACoA .
