Dendritic dieback in AD brain revealed by immunostaining for microtubules. (a) Glial cells in the stratum radiatum appear to clip dendrites into segments. Portions of glial cell cytoplasm insert between dendritic segments (arrows). (b) Segmented dendrites of the stratum radiatum from an AD case. The arrow points to segmentation that interrupts dendritic microtubules. MB = 2.5 μm. Republished from [31].
