Table 3 Summary of the semiquantitative grading of tau accumulation

From: Tau accumulation in the nucleus accumbens in tangle-predominant dementia

  Braak stage No. of cases Acb Caudate nucleus Septal nucleus CA1 Ent Temp
TPD III-IV 7 2.6 0.7 2.2 3 2.57 0.4
Non-demented I-II 3 0 0 0 0.67 1 0
III 8 1.13 0.25 0.63 1.38 2 1
AD IV 10 1.2 0.6 1.4 2.67 3 1.4
V 8 0.9 0.9 1.3 2.89 2.9 2.5
VI 4 1.3 1.3 1.7 3 3 3
  1. The numbers indicate averages of the scores in each group. The degree of tau pathology was qualitatively scored as 0: absent 1: low 2: intermediate 3: high.
  2. TPD, Tangle predominant dementia; AD, Alzheimer’s disease; NFT, Neurofibrillary tangles; Acb, nucl. Accumbens; CA1, Hippocampal CA1 region; Ent, Entorhinal cortex; Tmep, Temporal neocortex.
