  1. NA Not applicable, NFTs neurofibrillary tangles, - Not available
  2. Braak Stages [11]: III (NFTs in entorhinal cortex and closely related areas); III−IV (NFTs abundant in amygdala and hippocampus. Extending slightly into association cortex); V−VI (NFTs widely distributed throughout the neocortex and ultimately involving primary motor and sensory areas). CERAD Stages [48]: A (Low density of neuritic plaques); B (Intermediate density of neuritic plaques); C (High density of neuritic plaques)
