(nū'rō-fī'bril),
A filamentous structure seen with the light microscope in the nerve cell's body, dendrites, axon, and sometimes synaptic endings, as aggregations of much finer ultramicroscopic elements, the neurofilaments and microtubules; their functional significance remains to be established.

Sin embargo, las diferentes opiniones que existen en torno a la importancia relativa de la degeneracion neurofibrilar y las placas seniles neuriticas a la hora de definir anatomopatologicamente la EA se han trasladado al campo del DCL.
Los resultados neuropatologicos del Nuns Study (97) tambien han evidenciado la relacion existente entre la presencia de deterioro aislado de la memoria y la patologia de tipo Alzheimer, especialmente la degeneracion neurofibrilar, y han destacado tambien la importancia de las alteraciones cerebrovasculares, incluso en los sujetos con deterioro aislado de memoria, al excluir del analisis a los casos en los que existian indicios macroscopicos de infarto cerebral.
