These oily microglia resemble the foamy macrophages seen in atherosclerotic plaques. They correlate with aging, inflammation, and neurodegenerative disease.
Single-nucleus transcriptomics of postmortem AD brain and mouse models of amyloidosis hammers home the species-specific responses of microglia to Aβ pathology.
Three studies found no link between vascular disease and cerebral amyloidosis.
Positive allosteric modulators improve learning and memory in mouse models of AD and epilepsy.
In Alzheimer’s brain, granulovacuolar bodies in neurons harbor activated necrosomes. They correlate with tau pathology and neuron loss, raising new questions about how neurons die in this disease.
