Description

We examined the structural organization of cytoskeletal components and membrane systems in neurons of well preserved biopsy material from Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Information was obtained from thin sectioned material using conventional electron microscopy and from thick sections with the high voltage electron microscope.

Technical Details

This image is a survey volume from cerebral cortex to identify cells exhibiting hallmarks for AD degeneration.
