    Department of Psychiatry, New York University School of Medicine, Aging and Dementia Research Center, NY 10016, USA
    Psychiatry Res 90:113-23. 1999
    ..The average amygdala volume was 1.05 +/- 0.17 cm3 on the right and 1.14 +/- 0.15 cm3 on the left. Our amygdala volumes are in agreement with those reported in postmortem studies, which provides the reported method with face validity...

    S De Santi
    Department of Psychiatry, New York University School of Medicine, New York, NY, USA
    Neurobiol Aging 22:529-39. 2001
    ..These cross-sectional data show that in MCI hippocampal formation changes exist without significant neocortical changes. Neocortical changes best characterize AD. In both MCI and AD, metabolism reductions exceed volume losses...
