  1. Punch biopsies were made from unstained sections of the 25 brain regions shown above using a 4 mm (3 mm for regions 19 and 22 in Experiment II) punch biopsy tool. Cross-contamination of seeding activity between individuals and regions was prevented by disposing the biopsy tool after each punch
