Neuroscientific study paves the way for improving the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s

The prevailing theory on the causes of Alzheimer’s disease indicates that they are related to the abnormal accumulation of two proteins, amyloid-beta (Aβ) and tau, in neuronal tissues, but there are still many unknowns concerning the processes that trigger this neurodegenerative disease. To date, most scientific studies have analyzed the effect of one of these proteins, amyloid-beta, on neuronal dynamics, but without looking in depth at its complex interaction with tau in patients with Alzheimer’s.
