Brain Cells Known as Astrocytes Contribute to Alzheimer’s Nerve Cell Degeneration, Study Reports
Changes in brain cells known as astrocytes mirror transformations in Alzheimer’s disease, and may contribute to patients' nerve cell degeneration, a Finnish study reports. It is the first time that research has shown that astrocytes may contribute to Alzheimer's. The University of Eastern Finland team published their work, “PSEN1 Mutant iPSC-Derived Model Reveals Severe Astrocyte Pathology in Alzheimer’s Disease”, in Stem Cell Reports. Mice can be useful models for studying human diseases, but their astrocytes have a different function than human astrocytes do, so the researchers d
