It has long been known that the hippocampal pyramids are very susceptible to tangle formation. 32 Hyman showed that the death of entorhinal layer 2 neurons by way of tangle formation leads to loss of the perforant pathway into the hippocampus. Disease in deeper layers of the entorhinal cortex diminishes the efferent target from the hippocampus, which itself is thus isolated. Braak established six stages in the progression of Alzheimer’s disease, based largely on the presence of tangles. Most observers agree that the earliest stage involves a few such lesions in the transentorhinal region extending in the second stage into entorhinal cortex and then increasing in hippocampal and neocortical areas through stage six.
