Researchers Find That Tangles are Responsible for Alzheimer’s Disease Onset in Neocortical Networks
Researchers from Bar-Ilan University and the University of Edinburgh were able to characterize for the first time changes in early-stage Alzheimer’s disease that occur inside individual brains. Results from the study published in the journal Neuron suggest that Alzheimer's-affected cells result in a reduction of electrical activity throughout the cerebral cortex -- the brain’s center of higher mental function and cognition.
