Alzheimer's disease

Spanish researchers from the Institute of Biomedicine of Seville have taken a step forward (in Spanish) in understanding memory loss in Alzheimer's disease.

In collaboration with colleagues from Pablo de Olavide University, also in Seville, they observed how the accumulation of neurexin - a protein with an important role in connecting brain cells – causes memory loss.

The findings, published in the journal Experimental Neurology, showed that in mice an accumulation in the adult brain triggers specific memory defects.
