Human Exposure to Aluminum Linked to Familial Alzheimer’s Disease

Researchers found a close association between high aluminum content in brain tissue and amyloid-beta location in post-mortem samples of people with familial Alzheimer's disease. The findings back up previous claims that aluminum exposure may be linked to the development of the neurodegenerative disease.... Read More...

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....
