A total of 21 human brains (from individuals ranging from 27 gestational weeks to 14 years of age) were included in this study. The brains were collected during routine autopsies performed at several pathology departments. Standardized sanitary protocols that complied with Spanish regulations were followed, and informed consent was obtained from the families of the deceased. Postmortem intervals ranged from 12 to 24 h after death. Diagnostic procedures were performed by the respective trained neuropathologists, and all cases were free of neurological or psychological disorders. Data on age, sex and cause of death for the deceased are presented in Table 2.1.
