The three-dimensionally reconstructed hippocampal formations in three patients with very severe, immobile Alzheimer disease (AD) and three age-matched nondemented individuals were examined for a correlation between atrophy of hippocampal formation subdivisions and neurofibrillary changes, neuronal loss, and extent of amyloid deposition in plaques and… CONTINUE READING
