Dr. Ed Friedlander answered

Specializes in Pathology

There are a group of diseases, mostly genetic, in which the white matter of the brain is selectively damaged. Sometimes the white matter nearest to the outer gray matter is relatively spared, making the motor and sensory problems worse than the cognitive deficits.
