Saving Brain Connections by Targeting Synaptic Proteins May Treat Alzheimer’s, Study Finds
Proteins in nerve cell synapses, which transmit signals between neurons, are abnormal in the brains of patients with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, Swedish researchers concluded after performing a large-scale analysis of synaptic proteins in patients’ brains. By studying these flaws, researchers could distinguish between Alzheimer’s patients and those with Parkinson’s disease dementia. A loss
