Abstract [en]

Studying olfaction with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) poses various methodological challenges. This study aimed to investigate the effects of stimulation length and repetition time (TR) on the activation pattern of 4 olfactory brain regions: the anterior and the posterior piriform cortex, the orbitofrontal cortex, and the insula. Twenty-two healthy participants with normal olfaction were examined with fMRI, with 2 stimulation lengths (6 s and 15 s) and 2 TRs (0.901 s and 1.34 s). Data were analyzed using General Linear Model (GLM), Tensorial Independent Component Analysis (TICA), and by plotting the event-related time course of brain activation in the 4 olfactory regions of interest. The statistical analysis of the time courses revealed that short TR was associated with more pronounced signal increase and short stimulation was associated with shorter time to peak signal. Additionally, both long stimulation and short TR were associated with oscillatory time courses, whereas both short stimulation and short TR resulted in more typical time courses. GLM analysis showed that the combination of short stimulation and short TR could result in visually larger activation within these olfactory areas. TICA validated that the tested paradigm was spatially and temporally associated with a functionally connected network that included all 4 olfactory regions. In conclusion, the combination of short stimulation and short TR is associated with higher signal increase and shorter time to peak, making it more amenable to standard GLM-type analyses than long stimulation and long TR, and it should, thus, be preferable for olfactory fMRI.

Abstract [en]

Olfactory loss is a common non-motor symptom of Parkinson’s disease (PD), often preceding the cardinal motor symptoms of the disease. The aim of this thesis was to: (a) evaluate whether olfactory examination can increase diagnostic accuracy, and (b) study the structural and functional neural basis of olfactory dysfunction in PD with different applications of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

Paper I was a comparison of the diagnostic accuracy between a simple smell identification test and DaTSCAN Single Photon Emission Computerized Tomography (SPECT), a nuclear medicine tomographic imaging technique that is commonly used in patients with suspected parkinsonism. The results indicate that smell test is inferior to DaTSCAN SPECT, but the combination of these two methods can lead to improved diagnostic accuracy.

Paper II showed that diffusion MRI could detect discrete microstructural changes in the white matter of brain areas that participate in higher order olfactory neurotransmission, whereas MRI with Magnetization Transfer contrast could not.

Paper III was a methodological study on how two different acquisition parameters can affect the activation pattern of olfactory brain areas, as observed with functional MRI (fMRI). The results indicate that brief olfactory stimulation and fast sampling rate should be preferred on olfactory fMRI studies.

Paper IV used olfactory fMRI and resting-state fMRI in order to elucidate potentially altered activation patterns and functional connectivity within olfactory brain areas, between PD patients and healthy controls. Olfactory fMRI showed that olfactory impairment in PD is associated with significantly lower recruitment of the olfactory network. Resting-state fMRI did not detect any significant changes in the functional connectivity within the olfactory network of PD patients.

In conclusion, the included studies provide evidence of: (a) disease-related structural and functional changes in olfactory brain areas, and (b) beneficial addition of olfactory tests in the clinical work-up of patients with parkinsonism.
