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.
