Lenght of pyramidal neurons in cortical layer 3 of the PT subregions in control and AD groups for R and L sides. Length of the cell bodies is in μm. Abbreviations: R: right, L: left, STG: PT transition to superior temporal gyrus, HG: PT transition to Heschl’s gyri, I: PT transition to insula and SR: PT transition to Sylvian fissure, ctrl: control group, and AD: Alzheimer disease group.
