Immunocytochemical study of the dorsal and median raphe nuclei in patients with Alzheimer's disease prospectively assessed for behavioural changes.
The dorsal and median raphe nuclei were examined with immunocytochemistry to display the 5-HT neurones in 16 cases of post-mortem-proven Alzheimer's disease (AD) and 12 age and sex-matched controls. The AD cases had been prospectively assessed during life for expression of behavioural changes as well as for cognitive decline. A significant (P < 0.001) 41% reduction in density of dorsal raphe neurones was found along with a significant (P < 0.02) 29% reduction in density of median raphe ...Expand abstract
