 "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."
