Excitatory amino acid-releasing and cholinergic neurones in Alzheimer's disease.

Abstract

Brains of normal controls and patients with primary degenerative dementia were investigated for choline acetyltransferase (ChAT) activity in the frontal, temporal and parietal cortex, hippocampus, amygdala and thalamus. A few patients with Alzheimer's disease were unusual as the cholinergic marker was unaffected, except in the amygdala. Other patients with… (More)
