Journal Watch: Protective factors differentially affect amyloid pathology and Alzheimer’s disease-pattern neurodegeneration
Recent research led by Vemuri et al. indicates that a variety of risk factors influencing amyloid deposition are distinct from Alzheimer’s disease-pattern neurodegeneration.
Journal Watch: Lost in propagation – tau induces neuron loss and grid cell dysfunction in transgenic mice
Researchers at Colombia University, New York (NY, USA), have recently demonstrated that tau pathology induces dysfunction in cells specifically tuned to compute spatial information.
David Howett reviews a recent Lancet article that indicated that proximity to heavy traffic is associated with a higher incidence of dementia.
David Howett reviews a recent paper from Hefendehl et al. that reported that the microenvironment surrounding amyloid plaques disrupts neuronal glutamate homeostasis
Lauren Pulling highlights some of the key trending topics in neurology and neuroscience from 2016, as well as the top read articles of the year – take a look and let us know your thoughts.
Journal Watch columnist David Howett reviews the recent paper ‘Complement biomarkers as predictors of disease progression in Alzheimer’s disease’ and what its findings could mean for the future of Alzheimer’s disease diagnostics.
Journal Watch: aducanumab reduces amyloid aggregates and hints at cognitive benefit in a Phase Ib clinical trial
Biogen recently published the results of their Phase Ib clinical trial in Nature, taking newspaper headlines by storm; however, while the results of this clinical trial are promising, aducanumab is far from a silver bullet for AD.
Recent research using a novel tau ligand demonstrates that amyloid interacts with hippocampal and cortical tau to induce neurodegeneration. Tau imaging offers the opportunity to stage Alzheimer’s disease preclinically.
We delve in to one of the most talked about journal articles of last month, discussing key findings and take-home implications.
