There are some inappropriate manipulations or alterations of photographs in this publication. Specifically, in Figure 4, Panels A and B show identical brain sections, 90 degrees rotated. According to the legend, panel A is from a non-treated animal, whereas panel B is from an HNG treated animal. In Figure 5, Panels A and B show nearly identical brain sections, mirrored. A structure present in panel A is absent from panel B. Both panels contain repetitions that could result from deliberate manipulation. According the legend, panel A is from a non-treated animal, whereas panel B is from an HNG treated animal. In Figure 7, panels A, B, and D show nearly identical brain sections. All three panels contain repetitions that could result from deliberate manipulation. According the legend, panel A is from a non-treated animal, whereas panel B is from an HNG treated animal, and panel D is from an Aβ/HNG treated animal.The Editors of Neuropeptides and the scientific community take a very strong view on this matter and apologies are offered to readers of the journal. Unfortunately, issues of deliberate manipulation of this nature, despite our rigorous review process, are sometimes difficult to detect.
