Paired helical filaments, pathologically changed components of the cytoskeleton of human nerve cells, are demonstrated by a specific silver staining technique, immunostaining and electron microscopy. Accumulations of these filaments are found in the telencephalic cortex of old-aged individuals and patients suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Apart from neurofibrillary tangles and neuritic plaques, paired helical filaments are encountered in neuropil threads. At this third location, pathological… Expand
