MLF

ISO 4217 code for the Malian franc. It was issued in 1962, replacing the West African CFA franc at a one-to-one ratio. The Malian franc was a weak currency. In 1984, Mali adopted the CFA franc again at a ratio of two Malian francs to one West African CFA franc.

(60) Neuroimaging studies have found that the poorer sustained attention observed in binge drinking adolescents is associated with thicker PFCs (31) and lower FA in the inferior longitudinal fasciculus (67)--regions where thickness and FA differed significantly between binge drinking adolescents and control subjects.
Moreover, these authors reported an association between ToM impairment and alterations of white matter in the superior longitudinal fasciculus, adjacent to the parietal lobe, and of the white matter adjacent to the frontal lobe.
DTI studies found increased FA values and the decreased mean diffusivity in the corpus callosum, as well as a negative correlation between the number of years of alcohol consumption and FA in the internal capsule, superior longitudinal fasciculus, and other white matter tracts [59].

Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) measures show an increase in the number offibers in the right arcuate fasciculus in 7 patients undergoing MIT [20, 21] and showed a marginally significant correlation with improvement [20].
The most important fibre tract connecting the temporal and frontal language areas is the arcuate fasciculus, which extends from the posterior temporal lobe to the inferior frontal region in the lateral plane.
