Non-Alzheimers and atypical dementia
Language dysfunction is also more common in hippocampal sparing AD, although patients do not have vocal or hearing deficits. Murray says. The researchers benefit greatly from one of the largest brain banks in the country -- more than 6, brain donations -- as well as a collaborative environment between neuroscience research and neurology at Mayo Clinic, she says.
The researchers developed a mathematical algorithm to classify AD subtypes using tangle counts. In these patients, tau preferentially damages and eventually destroys neurons in parts of the brain involved in behavior, motor awareness and recognition, as well as use of speech and vision, Dr.
She says she hopes this research, the second high-profile Mayo study to highlight hippocampal sparing AD, will "open the minds" of clinicians who are trying to diagnose dementia, helping them understand that loss of memory is not present in every AD patient. Materials provided by Mayo Clinic.
