Clinical research criteria for the diagnosis of progressive supranuclear palsy (Steele-Richardson-Olszewski syndrome)
Criteria that support the diagnosis of progressive supranuclear palsy, and that exclude diseases often confused with PSP, are presented.

Stereological principles of neuron counting support the conclusion that a marked decrement of layer II neurons distinguishes even very mild AD from nondemented aging.
A Neural Dissociation within Language: Evidence that the Mental Dictionary Is Part of Declarative Memory, and that Grammatical Rules Are Processed by the Procedural System
Evidence is presented that the lexicon is part of a temporal-parietalhnedial-temporal declarative memory system and that granlmatical rules are processed by a frontamasal-ganglia procedural system.
Common variants in MS4A4/MS4A6E, CD2uAP, CD33, and EPHA1 are associated with late-onset Alzheimer’s disease
The Alzheimer Disease Genetics Consortium (ADGC) performed a genome-wide association study of late-onset Alzheimer disease using a three-stage design consisting of a discovery stage (stage 1) and two…
A controlled trial of selegiline, alpha-tocopherol, or both as treatment for Alzheimer's disease. The Alzheimer's Disease Cooperative Study.
In patients with moderately severe impairment from Alzheimer's disease, treatment with selegiline or alpha-tocopherol slows the progression of disease.
The Cortical Signature of Alzheimer's Disease: Regionally Specific Cortical Thinning Relates to Symptom Severity in Very Mild to Mild AD Dementia and is Detectable in Asymptomatic Amyloid-Positive…
Results demonstrate a reliably quantifiable in vivo signature of abnormal cortical anatomy in AD, which parallels known regional vulnerability to AD neuropathology, and may provide a powerful methodological framework for studies of neuropsychiatric diseases.
Neurofibrillary tangles but not senile plaques parallel duration and severity of Alzheimer's disease
The severity of dementia was positively related to the number of NFTs in neocortex, but not to the degree of SP deposition, and N FTs accumulate in a consistent pattern reflecting hierarchic vulnerability of individual cytoarchitectural fields.
Neuronal loss correlates with but exceeds neurofibrillary tangles in Alzheimer's disease
It is suggested that neuronal loss in association areas such as the superior temporal sulcus contributes directly to cognitive impairment in AD.
Genetic meta-analysis of diagnosed Alzheimer’s disease identifies new risk loci and implicates Aβ, tau, immunity and lipid processing
A large genome-wide association meta-analysis of clinically diagnosed late-onset Alzheimer’s disease (LOAD) from 94,437 individuals identifies new LOAD risk loci and implicates Aβ formation, tau protein binding, immune response and lipid metabolism.
Imaging amyloid deposition in Lewy body diseases
Global cortical amyloid burden is high in dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) but low in Parkinson disease dementia, and data suggest that β-amyloid may contribute selectively to the cognitive impairment of DLB and may contribute to the timing of dementia relative to the motor signs of parkinsonism.
