It is characterized by the accumulation of a protein called TDP-43 in the brain, specifically in the limbic system, which is responsible for emotions, memory, and behavior. LATE is considered the second most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer’s disease (AD) in individuals older than 90 years.
