A type of neuron may be responsible for Alzheimer's development. Investigations signed by researchers from the United States of the United States of America have clearly shown that congestion of some tau proteins seems to be part of this memory disease.
To achieve this conclusion, experts have studied the brain of patients with Alzheimer's Disease, as well as the mouse model. The experiment means that the neurons accumulated by abnormal tau protein excitory neuron instead of the invaders.
With this premise, the next step of the researchers was to carry out a genetic study carried out by donors with Alzheimer's disease or other neurological disorders.
Genetic differences were significant: excitatory neurons and other cells excitatory neurons seemed to appear susceptibility.
"We believe the cells of the brain are very abundant, that is, when proteins are accumulated, brain regions such as neurons and brain regions at the beginning of Alzheimer's disease," details of the study published in the journal Nature Neuroscience.
Now, the next step will be to help the genes interact with each other and contribute to the flooding of Alzheimer's disease and other neurological diseases.
"Environmental factors, brain injuries, diabetes, sleep depression, depression and other external factors have also been linked to the weakness of Alzheimer's disease and the intrinsic inequalities that affect these external influences." experts have pointed out. @mundiario
