Alzheimer’s Disease

Pathology

  1. Amyloid-beta deposition in grey matter for Alzheimer’s disease. Accumulation of amyloid-beta then leads to oligomers which finally form plaques. It can alter intracellular Ca2+ levels. [LaFerla2008]
  2. Amyloid-beta can transmit between human [Jaunmuktane2015]

Network Dysfunction

  1. Hypersynchrony and altered oscillatory rhythmic activity [Palop2016]
