Brain methionine- and leucine-enkephalin receptors in patients with dementia.


Brain [3H]Met- and [3H]Leu-enkephalin binding was studied in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and vascular dementia (VD), and in age-matched controls. Brain areas investigated were the internal and external globus pallidus, amygdala, hippocampus and temporal cortex.
