The authors noticed an inaccuracy in the paper entitled “Normal-pressure hydrocephalus: a critical review” by Oliveira et al.

In the “Alzheimer's disease” section, when you read:

(...) whilst in AD a “subcortical” type of cognitive impairment predominates, classically characterized by a dysexecutive syndrome, associated with inattention, apathy, memory impairment, and psychomotor slowing, NPH is marked by the presence of “cortical” signs - such as hippocampal amnesia, agnosia, apraxia, and aphasia.
