Deafferentation-induced abnormal neurofilament phosphorylation in red nucleus neurones.


Hippocampal deafferentation has been proposed as a pathogenetic mechanism for neurofibrillary tangle (NFT) formation in human mesolimbocortical dementia. We previously developed a rodent model of hippocampal deafferentation involving bilateral destructive lesions of the ventrotegmental area (VTA), septum of the medial forebrain and entorhinal cortex… (More)
