  • Ed, back up for a minute - are you saying that as a result of the literacy training, the grey matter in the adult sample increased (you wrote: “had more grey matter in five regions towards the back of their brains”) as in somehow added more neuronal cell bodies, neuropil, etc.,

  • The neuropil was shrunken in these regions, and the ventricles had correspondingly expanded to fill the space.

  • Vacuolated neurons and spongiform degeneration of the neuropil characteristic of TSE demonstrated by H&E staining and co-localization of PrP

  • CTE is characterized by the build-up of a toxic protein called tau in the form of neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) and neuropil threads (NTs) throughout the brain.

    THE MEDICAL NEWS

  • Hence, we show that E2 transiently increases neuronal connectivity by inducing dynamic nascent spines that "sample" the surrounding neuropil and that subsequent NMDAR activity is sufficient to stabilize or "hold" E2-mediated effects.

  • . . variable vacuolation in the background neuropil.
