Table 2 Results of the hypoperfusion-related ELISAs carried out in this study

From: Visual hallucinations in Alzheimer's disease do not seem to be associated with chronic hypoperfusion of to visual processing areas V2 and V3 but may be associated with reduced cholinergic input to these areas

  AD with visual hallucinations, n = 23 AD without visual hallucinations, n = 19 Dementia with Lewy bodies, n = 19 Controls, n = 36 Statistical findings Age as covariate Statistics with controls with no Psych Hx or CVAs
