Abstract

Alzheimer's disease (AD), the most common type of adult-onset dementia, is characterized by a variety of brain abnormalities, including degeneration of certain populations of nerve cells, alterations in the neuronal cytoskeleton, and the abnormal deposition of amyloid within brain parenchyma. Pathogenetic processes that lead to these brain abnormalities are difficult to study in humans. Recently, investigators have begun to utilize animal models to examine some of the mechanisms that cause cellular/molecular alterations in transmitter systems, cytoskeletal elements, and APP. These investigations have helped to clarify issues related to the lesions that occur in aged humans and individuals with AD.
