MalaCards: Posterior Cortical Atrophy, also known as biparietal alzheimer disease, is related to alzheimer's disease and dementia. An important gene associated with Posterior Cortical Atrophy is MAPT (microtubule-associated protein tau), and among its related pathways are Neuroscience and Alzheimer's disease. The compounds thioflavine s and tacrine have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include cortex, brain and testes, and related mouse phenotypes are other and taste/olfaction.
