ApoE4 Protein, Common in Alzheimer’s Patients, May Work to Impair Memory Formation
The major genetic risk factor for Alzheimer's disease (AD), the apolipoprotein E4 gene, is responsible for the disruption of a particular type of brain activity required for memory consolidation, according to the study "Apolipoprotein E4 Causes Age-Dependent Disruption of Slow Gamma Oscillations during Hippocampal Sharp-Wave Ripples," published in the journal Neuron. AD, one of the most common diseases among aging populations, is characterized by a progressive disruption in memory function. The hippocampus, a brain structure critical for learning and memor
