Predicted overlap (yellow) of aSyn in PD (green) with deposition patterns for tau in Alzheimer’s disease and primary age-related tauopathy (red) in the brainstem, limbic (e.g. amygdala, hippocampus, anterior cingulate) and subcortical areas (e.g. basal ganglia) and neocortical areas. According to the Braak stages of neurofibrillary tau pathology [98] the deposition of tau follows a similar involvement of anatomical systems (i.e., brainstem to limbic/subcortical to neocortex) as seen for aSyn for Lewy pathology [97]
