  1. This is a thoughtful commentary on the important paper from the UC-Irvine group, published in the same issue of Neuron, which provides evidence for an early impact of intraneural A beta upon cognition in the LaFerla triple mutant model of AD.

    I agree that this is not yet the final word on the subject; important impacts of intracellular and extracellular moeities of APP-derived peptides are not mutually exclusive. Our lab, however, has favored a key role for intracellular events at least since 1993 (Fukuchi  et al., 1993).
