Study pinpoints Alzheimer’s plaque emergence early and deep in the brain

Researchers use SWITCH technology to label amyloid plaques in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease so they could be imaged in fine detail at different ages. They were consistently able to see the plaques first emerged in deep brain structures and tracked circuits, such as the Papez memory circuit, to spread throughout the brain as the animal aged....
