Protein involved in Alzheimer’s proven to have a role in weakening synaptic plasticity.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, affecting over 44 million people worldwide. Inside the brain, Alzheimer’s disease is characterized by loss of neurons, and presence of abnormal tangles and plaques in the brain. Now, researchers from the University of Toronto have found that molecules that are strongly associated with Alzheimer’s disease are important players in a process called long-term depression (LTD).
