Yet more on the JNEN review article

Regarding brainstem Lewy bodies, here's something interesting from the article: "The ultrastructural similarities among filaments in LBs [Lewy bodies], pale bodies, and perikaryal threads prompted the hypothesis that AS [alpha-synuclein] perikaryal threads are an early stage of filament assembly that may then progress to pale bodies and, finally, to classic LBs."
