Alzheimer’s: newly identified molecular mechanism could lead to treatment

DURING the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease, when individuals appear to be free of symptoms, toxic changes are nevertheless taking place in the brain - including synapse loss. Though scientists do not yet fully know what causes this form of dementia, researchers have found how brain cell connections are destroyed in early stages of the disease. The researchers, led by scientists at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Australia, say their findings could lead to more research into possible treatments.
