Alzheimer’s Disease Causes Cells to Overheat and ‘Fry Like Eggs’ – Neuroscience News

Summary: The heat produced by amyloid-beta aggregation may cause other, healthy amyloid-beta to aggregate, causing more and more aggregates to form. However, with the addition of a novel drug compound, amyloid-beta aggregation can be stopped and the cell temperature lowered. Source: University of Cambridge Researchers have shown that aggregation of amyloid-beta, one of two key …

Neural ‘Poisonous Flowers’ Could Be The Source of Alzheimer’s Plaque, Says Study

Alzheimer’s disease has long thwarted our best efforts to pinpoint its underlying causes. Now, a new study in mice suggests that ‘poisonous flowers’ bulging with cellular debris could be the root source of one hallmark of the wretched disease and a beautifully sinister sign of a failing waste disposal system inside damaged brain cells.   …
