Tau phosphorylation in human brain: relationship to behavioral disturbance in dementia.
Agitation and aggressive behavior are common symptoms of Alzheimer's disease (AD), and tangle density in frontal cortex is a possible regional substrate of these behaviors. To investigate this further, 16 AD patients, 8 patients with non-AD dementia, and 13 age-matched control subjects for frontal cortex and, respectively, 21, 7, and 6 patients for parietal cortex were analyzed for tau and phospho-tau by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Agitation/aggression was determined by the Pre...Expand abstract
