  1. Alzheimer-related cortical Aβ deposits and neurofibrillary (NFT) changes were classified using the Braak staging (Acta Neuropathol 1991;82:239–59). Cortical and vascular Aβ deposits were visualized with the Campbell-Switzer silver stain and the anti-Aβ antibody 4G8. NFT staging was performed with the Gallyas silver stain and immunohistochemistry (IHC) with the anti-hyperphosphorylated tau antibody AT8. Parkinson staging was performed according to Braak (Neurobiol Aging 2003;24:197–211). ACA anterior cerebral artery, comp.
