Alzheimer’s disease: Molecular signals cause brain cells to switch into a hectic state

Alzheimer’s disease damages the nervous system in many different ways. This is because the disease affects not only neurons but also other brain cells, such as the astrocytes. These support the normal function of neurons and are involved in the regulation of cerebral blood flow. Through experimental studies scientists of the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases at the Bonn and Berlin sites have now gained new insights into how Alzheimer’s interferes with the metabolism of astrocytes. —> Read More Here
