This study examined the amygdaloid complex in Alzheimer's disease (AD). We compared the distribution and morphology of somatostatin (SOM-) and neuropeptide Y-immunoreactive (NPY-IR) neurons in the amygdala with the distribution of neuritic plaques (NP) and acetylcholinesterase (AChE) staining patterns in various subnuclei. We found that in AD, there was an… CONTINUE READING
