New Imaging Study Shows Key Brain Changes in Aging, Alzheimer’s

A new collaborative study led by McKnight Brain Institute neuroscientists Sara Burke, Ph.D., and Marcelo Febo, Ph.D., gives insight into why brain networks become vulnerable in old age and in neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.

The rodent-model study, published in the journal eNeuro, links micro-scale changes in individual brain cells to large-scale changes in brain networks — a finding that could help in the development of therapies to improve cognitive function in the elderly.
