(Source: Technische Universitaet Muenchen ) - Studying a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease, neuroscientists at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen have observed correlations between increases in both soluble and plaque-forming beta-amyloid - a protein implicated in the disease process - and dysfunctional developments on several levels. Their results show that these changes progress in parallel and that, together, they reveal distinct stages in Alzheimer's disease with a specific order in time.
