A very interesting view point!
This hypothesis stands also for APP.

Very interesting review providing a fair and original account of the available data. I strongly recommend this paper.
I would like to remark that the clinical data linking presenilin mutations with non-amyloid dementias have not yet been corroborated with further work demonstrating a causal relationship. For instance, the dementia in the family with the Psen1 insR352 is likely caused by a mutation in progranulin, as reported recently by Boeve et al. (2006).
