  1. PMI means were similar between groups, and subject ages differed only between young normal specimens and the other groups. Data are expressed as means ± SEM. (ap < 0.05 vs. other groups; abbreviations: AD, Alzheimer's disease; AN, aged normal; DLB, dementia with Lewy bodies; PD, Parkinson's disease; PMI, post-mortem interval; YN, young normal)
