Abstract

The authors report a case in which pathological lying is associated with right hemithalamic dysfunction as shown by [99mTc]HMPAO SPECT brain scanning. This association has not been demonstrated previously and is noteworthy because it supports the hypothesized roles of the thalamus and associated brain regions in the modulation of behavior and cognition.
