As Glucose Levels Fall in the Brain, Series of Molecular Reactions Seen to Kill Neurons
Low glucose levels in the brain are known to lead memory problems and cognitive decline, and new research suggests they do so by triggering a series of molecular reactions that ultimately kill neurons. These findings provide fresh insight into changes that set the stage for Alzheimer’s disease. The research also identified a protein that appears to be involved in Alzheimer’s
