- Correspondence between in vivo (11)C-PiB-PET amyloid imaging and postmortem, region-matched assessment of plaquesIra Driscoll
National Institute on Aging, Baltimore, MD, USA
Acta Neuropathol 124:823-31. 2012..The strong associations of PiB retention with region-matched, quantitative analyses of Aβ in postmortem tissue offer support for the validity of (11)C-PiB-PET imaging as a method for evaluation of plaque burden in vivo...
- Resistance to Alzheimer's pathology is associated with nuclear hypertrophy in neuronsMiguel Angel Riudavets
Division of Neuropathology, Department of Pathology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD 21205, USA
Neurobiol Aging 28:1484-92. 2007..This nuclear hypertrophy may represent an early neuronal reaction to Abeta or Tau, or a compensatory mechanism which forestalls the progression of AD and allows the brain to resist the development of dementia...

Division of Neuropathology, Department of Pathology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland 21205, USA
Mov Disord 27:1379-86. 2012..Our findings suggest that neuronal loss and atrophy in striatum and neuronal loss in subthalamic nuclei contribute specifically to the motor impairment of HD, but not to chorea...
