4 Regions of the Brain with Reduced Rates of Glucose Metabolism in 11 e4 Homozygotes and Their Relation to Brain Regions with Reduced Glucose Metabolism in 37 Patients with Probable Alzheimer's Disease. Reiman et al., 1996 The purple areas are regions in which glucose metabolism was significantly reduced only in the group with probable Alzheimer's disease, the blue areas regions in which glucose metabolism was significantly reduced in both the 4 homozygotes and the patients with probable Alzheimer's disease, and the green areas regions in which glucose metabolism was significantly reduced only in the 4 homozygotes.
