"Thirty-four percent of the men with Alzheimer’s who donated their brains
to the State of Florida brain bank were inaccurately diagnosed, researchers
found. Only 22 percent of women with Alzheimer’s were misdiagnosed.
Researchers were able to identify the donated brains as having come from
people Alzheimer’s because of the presence of the tau and amyloid proteins
found in the brain of someone with Alzheimer’s."
