Fig. 11

Diagram of pathologic determinants associated with further progression of αsyn pathology. The diversity of αsyn pathologies across different brain regions in LBD is shown in orange while the more limited αsyn pathology in AD/ALB is in blue (C = cingulate cortex, A = amygdala, M = midbrain-substantia nigra pars compacta). In LBD, diverse αsyn pathologies are most abundant within the amygdala where common co-localization with tau and Aβ are seen along with dense αsyn-positive neuropil aggregates including in glial processes that may represent a less easily sequestered strain of αsyn. In AD/ALB, αsyn pathology is largely limited to large LB type inclusions that may represented a more sequestered and less pathogenic strain of αsyn
